I'm the only candidate who can solve Nigeria's problems - Oby Ezekwesili(ACPN)

Oby Ezekwesili , presidential candidate of the ACPN, says she is eminently qualified to lead Nigeria to the Promised Land - Ezekwesili insists that she is the only candidate with the capacity and competency to deliver the country from its complex problems - The former education minister says she is running in the forthcoming elections because Nigeria has no reason to be a failure Prof Obiageli Ezekwesili, the presidential candidate of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), has stated that she is eminently qualified to lead Nigeria to the Promised Land. Ezekwesili made the comment while addressing a group of artisans, youths, students, people with disabilities and some market women at the popular Arewa House, Kaduna on Thursday, January 17, The Nation reports.
We gathered that the former education minister lamented that over the years, Nigeria has lacked quality leadership to take the country where it ought to be in the comity of nations. Ezekwesili insisted that she is the only candidate with the capacity and competency to deliver the country from its complex problems. She said: “We have lacked quality leadership in Nigeria. It doesn’t matter that all those that have governed us are men. It doesn’t make any difference in quality of life of Nigerian persons. “I am that candidate with competence and capacity to solve the complex problems that seem to have eluded us for so long. “We cannot afford to have many more millions of Nigerians to join more than 87 million that are already poor. “Therefore, anyone who is thinking of me being a woman has not come in term with other Nigerians I have interacted with in the course of our campaign. They have always said Oby is the candidate we can trust.” She continued: “When you are tired of mediocrity, the only person you can think of is Oby Ezekwesili, who is offering herself to lead. “The reason is simple. I have always been known in this society as one who has a strong voice for the fact that Nigeria can be better than it is now. “Nigeria has no reason to be a failure and that is why I am running in this election.” Asked if the fact that she wasn't given any political assignment was what made her angry with the current government, she responded: "I rejected to be a minister many times since I was a minister in this country. I don’t need to be a minister. “What I need is that this society must be mobilised immediately to see how we can come out of the whole failure and incompetence they have thrown us into.”
Meanwhile It was previously reported that Prof Obiageli Ezekwesili said she would chart a new direction toward making Nigeria great if elected president in the February 16 election. Ezekwesili spoke on Tuesday, January 15, in Akure while flagging off her south-west presidential campaign that drew party members from Ekiti, Osun and Ondo states. She said the ruling All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party had failed the country, arguing they lack the capacity take the country to the desired great heights.
