African Democratic Congress (ADC) Presidetial aspirant, Kingsley Moghalu, says the upcoming elections might stir up a revolution in the country.
Mr Moghalu emphasized the need to address poverty and insecurity in the country in order to avoid future worsening conditions.
He stated this at a banquet and national parley organised by the leadership of ADC for its 11 presidential aspirants.
The former Central Bank of Nigeria’s deputy governor said his fear was based on the increasing rate of poverty and deprivation.
Mr Moghalu said Nigeria needed a visionary leader with the capacity to enhance nation building, national security, economic and international relations.
According to him, 2023 general elections will provide Nigerians a historic choice to turn around their fortune for the better by voting into power a purposeful and visionary leader.
“I am running for president because the poverty in this country is simply too much to ignore anymore and if it continues, it will lead to a social revolution, I have no doubt about it, it will happen but it’s just a matter of when,” asserted Mr Moghalu.
“I am running for president because of all the young people of this country who have no job, meanwhile we are having more and more children.”
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling APC have repeatedly claimed making the country better than they met it by improving the economy and security.
