NewsReport gathered that Benedicta Egbo, a Canadian professor of education, has run for the presidency, stating that she entered the race to address the “mess” that previous presidents have thrown Nigeria into. Prof. Egbo declared this on Monday while running for President on the National Rescue Movement’s platform.
She stated that an upward evaluation of worker salaries and security, among other things, was at the top of her presidential agenda.
Egbo also bemoaned the N30,000 minimum salary, despite the fact that a bag of food costs N30,000 or more.
“Nigeria has become a beggar nation, and if we are not careful, Nigeria will borrow itself into bankruptcy,” she stated.
“I joined the race to serve Nigerians because all past and current political leaders owe Nigerians an apology.” Nigeria has never had it so good. The country has retrogressed rather than progressed.
“The frequent cross-carpeting of politicians from APC to PDP is evidence of unprincipled leaders who only care about their selfish interests and lack a sense of direction.”
“Governance is more than waving umbrellas and brooms. Governance should involve good and principled leadership that is grounded in competency, patriotism, and a vision for the common good. Instead, what we operate is a government of a few, for a few, by a few. ”
She maintained that corruption has increased significantly under the administration of the current government at the federal level, saying that corruption in Nigeria is so bad that it should be considered a national disease.
On her chances going into the 2023 polls, Prof Egbo said, “It is all psychological.” I do not see why Nigeria is not ready for a female president. We need to change things. I am running because I want to see this country respected. We must reclaim our future. “
