This country needs someone who is fit intellectually, someone new and fresh, young and bold, somehow courageous who has not been corrupt by the present evil system that has been going on in this country. We earnestly yearn for a leader who can confidently and boldly challenge and deal with all the problems of this country most especially corruption, without any fear or favour.”

This country deserves the best, Nigerians deserve better than just having politicians who are just looking after their stomach and families.”Photo Ctedit: Getty
