A presidential aspirant of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu has urged Nigerians not to sell their voting power to career politicians who have failed in the last twenty years.
Moghalu made the assertion while fielding questions from journalists at the end of his Town Hall Meeting in Calabar at Transcorp Hotels, Calabar the Cross River State capital.
His words: “My message for Nigerians is that of hope. The power to change your destinies is in your own hand. Don’t let career politicians buy your vote; don’t sell your destiny for just small money. Ignore the APC and PDP. We have tasted twenty years of them, but poverty and unemployment is yet increasing.”
The former CBN Deputy Governor averred that his economic plan will be a total paradigm shift from the dependence on oil into an innovation driven economy.
Professor Moghalu said his administration will set up four architectural apparatus that will facilitate the delivery of his vision; which according to him are, “office of National Strategy, office of Risk Management, office of Performance Management and office of Human Capital Development.
“The office of National Strategy will set out the ground norm, and shall also be saddled with the responsibility of implementing the vision of the Government.
“The National office of Risk Management will help us manage the risk in which previous leaders failed, while the office of Performance Management will manage the performance of the various parts of Government against the benchmarks and timelines set by the National Strategy.
“And where a section does not perform, the Head of such parastatal will be fired. The office of Human Capital Development shall be in charge of overseeing the development of the citizens through proper educational system.” He said.
In conclusion, Moghalu said: “Change will not happen in just four years,” and assured Nigerians that his administration will take progressive steps that will make such change possible.
