Buhari Lacks Political Will To Secure The Nation – Moghalu
Professor Kingsley Moghalu, the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari lacks the political will to secure the nation.
The presidential candidate said this on Monday during an interview on Channels Television programme.
Moghalu, however, boasted that he has “the political will to secure Nigeria,” claiming that “President Muhammadu Buhari does not have the political will to secure this nation.”
He also lamented that Boko Haram and herders attacks still persist in the nation. The Professor attributed this to the lack of political will and competence of the government.
“The problem is two things – the real political will is not there, the competence is not there. There is a lot of parochialism in the security management of Nigeria.
“All the security agencies in this country, almost 99% of them are headed by people from one part of the country. This is one of the reasons why this country is not secured,” Moghalu said.
He also decried the high level of the poverty rate in Nigeria, calling for the right policies to address the present situation of the nation.
The professor also promised to initiate good innovations as well as ideas that would create better opportunities for Nigerians if elected as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Moghalu also stated that the fundamental aspect of the economy of Nigeria is not functioning properly and that is why the poverty level has gone so high. You manage the economy with a vision.
“There are three things that will make Nigeria’s economy function very well. Once I get into office as President, I will ensure those things are in place – property rights, innovation, the capital. That is how a capitalist economy functions.
“None of those three things exists in the Nigerian economy. How can the economy function well?” Moghalu asked.
While the 2019 general elections are barely 158 days from now, Professor Kingsley Moghalu called for the ‘recycling of old politicians’ whom he said do not mean well for the citizens of Nigeria.
