Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and ex-presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, has declared intention to run for the office of the president again in 2023 general elections.
Moghalu made his intention known in a series of tweets on his official Twitter handle.
He wrote, “2023: I will run because the people matter.
“There is no hope out of our troubles until Nigeria faces the leadership question and looks for capacity, competence, and a compassionate heart for the suffering poor.”
The further tweeted, ”What is the value of a Nigerian life?
“We live daily in the shadow of terrorists. The economy is collapsing. Many families cannot afford the price of food.
“Only the emergence of a visionary, competent, and inclusive national leadership on the one hand, and the fundamental constitutional restructuring of Nigeria on the other, can arrest Nigeria’s ongoing and violent disintegration into a completely failed state.
“For the sake of the youths of our country, I intend, with all humility, to present myself again to Nigerians as a candidate for the Office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the 2023 general elections.”
Moghalu was a presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party in 2019 and was among those who lost to incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
