A female presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Patience Ndidi-Key, on Wednesday visited Kano to seek the support of delegates ahead of the party’s presidential primary.
Ms Ndidi-Key met with PRP leaders and delegates at Aminu Kano Centre for Democratic Studies, (Mumbayya House), Kano.
Ms Ndidi-Key is one of the PRP’s presidential aspirants seeking the party’s ticket for the 2023 presidential election.
While canvassing for the delegates’ votes, the aspirant
said her administration would implement a three-point agenda of peace, equity, and wealth creation if elected president.
“I hereby appeal to you to support my presidential ambition by voting for me to clinch the party’s ticket at the forthcoming primary election,” said Ms Ndidi-Key.
Ms Ndidi-Key added that the economic and security challenges in the country inspired her to declare her intention to run for president in a male-dominated country as Nigeria.
Ms Ndidi-Key, a diasporan Nigerian, said she would use her leadership experience of more than 15 years in the U.S. to provide the right kind of leadership for Nigeria.
“As a community leader and the former chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation in the United States, I worked with fellow Nigerians and other Nigerian professionals, ethnic, religious, and business organisations,” the PRP presidential hopeful stressed. “I related with the government in power by virtue of my office. These interactions have given me better insights into the Nigerian nation, the issues, and governance.”
She attributed Nigeria’s perennial problems to bad leaders.
“We don’t need foreign countries to survive, we need us to survive,” she stated.
Ms Ndidi-Key further mentioned that she would focus on power, education, health care and infrastructure development and urged Nigerians to make wise and conscious decisions as they vote in a new president in 2023 towards overcoming poverty, hunger, and the prevailing security challenges.
“I see impoverishment in a nation with so much abundance, I see people die of preventable diseases, I see so much chaos and insurgency in friendly and happy communities,” said Ms Ndidi-Key. “I see communities agitating for self-determination, separatism, and referendum because the people feel marginalised, secluded, unprotected, and disrespected.”
Three governorship aspirants who spoke at the event said that Nigerians were yearning for a candidate who understands the nation’s challenges and is experienced to reposition it.
