With over two years to the 2023 general election, an industrialist, Mazi Ohuabunwa has declared his intention to contest to be the president of the country and floated a political movement to actualise the dream.
At the official unveiling of the movement, christened, ”The new Nigeria group” in Abuja, Mazi Ohuabunwa said there was enormous potential locked up in Nigeria that was set to unleash.
Unveiling the group which has members drawn from various states of the country, Mazi Ohuabunwa said he was joining the political fray to introduce a non-violent revolution of ideas that would reposition the country.
Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari would bequeath a legacy of free and fair elections at the end of his tenure.
The chairman of the occasion, Mohammad Farouk-Awal, an activist said the mounting problems confronting the nation required someone like Mazi Ohuabunwa with a proven track record of performance and integrity to summount, a view the traditional ruler of Igbomina in Ekiti state, also shared.
In a remark, the chairman of the NUJ FCT council, Comrade Emmanuel Ogbeche, said there was need for an elite consensus to break the circle of failings trailing the nation, through the involvement of professional bodies in politics.
The high point of the event was the unveiling of the logo of the political movement.
