Fellow Nigerian youths. MY DECLARATION Fellow Nigerians, I make this declaration with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. I weep for Nigeria, my beloved country! Nations which were in the same league with us at independence have since joined the developed world, while we are daily retrogressing rather than make advancement. Nigeria ought to be the pride of the black race. But today, we have become a global embarrassment! This nation is blessed with vast natural and human resources. Yet, we live as though we are sub-humans. Our albatross over the years, is largely hinged on the fact that those who manage our resources are ill-prepared for office, selfish and lack the vision for posterity. In 2011, I wrote a book titled MY PRESCRIPTION FOR NIGERIA (available online at www.mpfng.blogspot.com) In that publication, I stated the 23 areas that must be addressed for Nigeria to become the nation of our dreams. Ever since, I've passed the content therein to our national leadership with very little willingness to so implement on their part, as this will make the occupation of political office strictly a seat for rendering SERVICE and not a ticket for self enrichment, taking the political and economic power away from them, placing it in the hands of the masses! Seeing that our present crop of political leadership might never implement these recommendations, I have decided to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so that I can put machineries in place for the actualization of these recommendations, which will birth the New Nigeria of our dreams. I hereby call on our youths, which form about 70% of the Nigerian population, to rise up and join me in this civil revolution through the ballot box come 2019, rather than recycle the current political brigades. I hereby encourage our youths to rise up to this challenge and vie for elective offices in their various localities. We must however identify credible youths in our domain with leadership qualities who are selfless, visionary and worthy of our votes. When we identify those, we should encourage them to run for elective offices and work hard for their emergence at the polls, for if we fold our hands and allow youths who are not worthy of leadership to assume office, they shall leave us far worse than the former. I am but a Medical Practitioner, not a money-bag. So at the appropriate time, you shall all contribute your widow's mite to the success of this project; our project! Tell your friends, colleagues, siblings, parents, neighbours, that a new Nigeria is possible and together we can! We shall not bribe electorates to get their votes come 2019. These politicians bribed them for votes not long ago, but now we are all suffering the consequences thereof. SHARE and Spread this message far and wide. Consider yourself the Campaign Manager of this project called REVOLUTION-NIGERIA-2019 in your locality. I urge you all to start reaching out in your various localities, gathering yourselves into groups, in your places of work and residence, ward-by-ward towards the success of this all-important project. A New Nigeria is possible! Together we can. Yes We Fit! God bless Nigeria. Yes We Fit!!!
