Presidential aspirant visits Falae, canvasses restructuring of 2019
Written by freshadmin2 on March 13, 2018
A presidential aspirant, Dr. Thomas Wilson -Ikubese, has advocated for the restructuring of the country before the 2019 general elections.
Ikubese, who is a chieftain of the National Conscience Party, NCP, said President Muhammadu Buhari must summon the courage to implement the most critical aspects of restructuring of the country before handing over power in 2019.
The medical doctor made the remarks when he, as part of his consultations with leaders of thoughts, political blocks and elder statesmen in Nigeria towards his 2019 ambition, visited Chief Olu Falae, former Secretary to the Federal Government, in his Akure residence.
Ikubese thanked Falae for his steadfastness over the Nigerian project and his various pragmatic contributions towards the emergence of a functional Nigerian state.
According to him, the 2019 Presidential election will be a watershed in the annals of Nigerian history as it will be more about personalities rather than political parties as Nigerians are tired of the APC and PDP and earnestly seek a credible alternative to take Nigeria out of the woods.
Ikubese further stated that any political alliance that throws up a recycled politician as its Presidential Candidate in 2019 would not meet the expectations of Nigerians who now crave for a departure from the status quo and a breath of fresh air to usher in a new altruistic political ideology of putting Nigeria first and making the system work.
The aspirant also commiserated with Chief Falae on his 2015 kidnap saga and the recent attack on his farm, all of which he described as symptomatic of failed leadership and the need for a restructured state.
According to Ikubese, “an unrestructured Nigeria, is a nation sitting on a keg of gunpowder”.
Falae, in his response, thanked Ikubese for blazing the trail in gouty advocacy in Nigeria as his wake up call on Nigerian youths to get involved in altruistic politics is beginning to yield fruits, with more and more youths showing interest in governance.
