The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Placid Mmaduabuchi Emmanuel, has promised to pursue only those things that would move the unity and development of the nation forward.
According to him, most of those presently grandstanding as messiahs to the myriad of problems bedeviling the nation were actually the architects of the problems, hence cannot be sincere in their hearts.He premised his message of hope and infrastructure enhancement; streamlining of import bottlenecks and 50 % slash of duties so as to stimulate raw materials availability and commerce; right to expression/speech; right to life, health, education and electricity among others.
Describing LP as the only party with a human face, Mr Emmanuel appealed to citizens, especially the voters to chose to do things differently this time and see the way things would transform positively for all adding that he would create 15-million jobs in the first 18 months of his administration.
The Onitsha-based business executive wondered how the nation’s leaders sleep daily when they know some children are out of school and on the streets, some in captivity, some have become kidnappers, criminals and purveyors of anti-social acts, not as a choice, but because of circumstances made possible by their misrule.
He said that what he saw during his nationwide consultation with the citizens made his heart ache after seeing the squalor and deprivation citizens of a well-endowed nation like Nigeria have been contending with while the privileged so-called leaders swim in immoral opulence and frivolity.
