I am in Politics not because I Need the Title- Oby Ezekwesili
Ezekwesili who made this statement on Sunday during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday politics, added that her being in politics is to save the country whose citizens are already getting tired of.
“I am in politics not because I need the title. I am in politics not because I need to answer Madam President. I am in politics because there is an urgent need to rescue our nation,” she said.
According to Ezekwesili, Nigerians are tired of the politics of zoning with respect to who occupies the office of the President, further stating that most citizens have alienated themselves from the country as a result of the way those at the helm of affairs govern the nation.
The presidential aspirant also promised to change the way things work if given the mandate to become the country’s President.
“I am interested in tackling poverty. I want to govern in a way that we can tackle poverty from more than 80 million Nigerians.
“I am tired of the failure of Nigeria. If we are going to get a different Nigeria, we need to think of economic restructuring from an economic prism. The politicians don’t think of economic when they talk about restructuring,” she said.
