The Presidential Aspirant for Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) Mr Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim says if elected President of the country, he will make security a priority.
Olawepo made this known after picking the party’s nomination and expression of interest forms on Wednesday in Abuja.
Alliance for New Nigeria was one of the 23 political parties registered on Aug. 14 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to Olawepo-Hashim, if given the opportunity to rule the country, he will foster unity, fix the economy and stop the killings in the land.
“I am most assured I can get the job done given my record of accomplishment.
“I will restructure the economy from a dependent one to a self-reliant economy by investing in iron and steel, research and development and in other critical sectors,” he said.
The aspirant who is a business mogul with interest in oil exploration and energy generation also promised to implement a new economic development programme.
He said that the programme would lead to the expansion of Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from 510 billion dollars to 4 trillon dollars within ten years.
“It will also create jobs from manufacturing, industrialisation and then link up industries with solid minerals and the agricultural sector.”
Olawepo-Hashim said the agricultural sector would be integrated with the industrial and solid mineral sectors to create sustainable jobs for youth employment.(NAN)
The Chairman of the party, Mr Emmanuel Dania, while speaking shortly after he presented the nomination form to the presidential aspirant, said that the heart of the party was about the people.
“We are coming to deliver to Nigerians a New Nigeria,” he said.
Dania assured Nigerians that the party would not engage in act of vote-buying which was becoming an order of the day but would get overwhelming support from Nigerians.
“It’s a new face of politics in Nigeria,” he said.
