“I’m Best Fit To Fix Nigeria’s Problems”

By Denen Achussah

All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant for 2023 general election, Chief Moses Chiahemba Atom, has said that he is the best material to fix Nigeria’s problems from 2023.

Ayom made the assertion on Saturday, 1st January, 2022, when he declared his ambition to run for the office of President, Federal Republic of Nigeria at NUJ House Makurdi.

He explained that the country is so diverse that it requires someone younger to be able to cope in administering the people, saying none of those who have indicated interest to lead as president in 2023 so far are far other than he is.

Ayom said he was contesting for the office of President in 2023 to “make Nigeria a better place for all.”

According to the APC man, “Nigeria is a country of great promise. We have all the natural and human resources to guarantee good life for every Nigerian, lead Africa and play big in the top league of advanced world economies.”

He nevertheless identified some of the problems confronting the country to include “inadequate and epileptic power supply, a poor manufacturing base, bad roads, poor healthcare, weak educational system, poverty, unemployment, a lack of a social welfare system to take care of the poor and underprivileged as well as dependence on foreign imports for basically all our domestic needs amongst others.”

Apart from that, the industrialist said Nigeria is also facing serious issues of inequality, in the face of “unfairness in deployment of national resources and injustice in the policy that are fueling crisis and political unrest.”

“The latest additions to these problems are the issues of insecurity. Since 2011, the Nigeria security landscape has been shaped by the war against Boko Haram terrorist group in the northern states in addition to increased cases of banditry and kidnappings in the north-west and continued unrest in the southeast resulting from separatist agitations.

“All these problems are related and a direct consequence of the priorities and competences of the various governments that have led Nigeria over the years.

“But they are not insurmountable. To the naysayers, I wish to state that God did not make a mistake putting Nigeria together. Our problems are all man made and can be fixed with the right type of leadership.”

He is convinced that “a united, secure and prosperous Nigeria is possible now.”

Ayom, therefore, announced a broad compass for achieving Nigeria’s greatness based on ten cardinal points as follows: Security; power supply; vibrant economy; massive Investment in social infrastructure including roads, bridges, transportation systems; education; access to quality healthcare for a better Nigeria; industrialisation; mechanised agriculture; climate change and to tackle the drug menace.

He acknowledged that “under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria has made significant improvements at many key levels. These need to be sustained and I believe that I am best suited to succeed him in 2023 to consolidate his legacy and build a better Nigeria for all Nigerians.”

Ayom stated that under his watch as president, every Nigerian, irrespective of religious, ethnic, regional groupings will feel a sense of pride, acceptance, participation, moral responsibility, collective prosperity, and shared destiny.

He expressed confidence that by 2023, he will be elected president, because of his passion and deep love for the country.
