Professor Pat Utomi, the Co-Convener of Nigeria Consultative Front (NCFront), has promised to double Nigeria’s GDP in five (5) years if given the chance to be the president of the nation in 2023.
For the teeming unemployed graduates, Utomi said, he is ready to pay them N100,000 monthly to provide services for the country in some critical areas such as, security.
Prof. Utomi made these submissions while speaking on ‘Sunday Politics,’ a current affairs programme, monitored in Lagos on Easter Sunday.
Utomi however maintained that, both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), are both lacking political ideology and culture to govern the nation.
He is therefore of the opinion that because both APC and PDP are two political parties with the same side of the coin, they are both mere election winning machines that have no concrete plans for the country.
Utomi said, rather than be a dreamer without concrete plans on how to actualize the dreams, himself and his group is forming a coalition with the Labour movement, civil society organizations, and other groups to take over power come 2023; adding that, Nigerians want to see concrete plans that will better their lives.
According to Prof. Utomi, Nigeria Rescue Movement, Peoples Redemption Party, Labour, and other stakeholders are already working together as a collegiate system to present a common front while believing that with the selection of a right candidate, the coalition will be strong enough and possibly win the 2023 presidential election.
In Pat Utomi’s words: “Just like the coalition between the All Peoples Party (APP) and the Alliance for Democracy (AD), produced Chief Olu Falae and Alhaji Umaru Shinkafi in 1999, in the next few weeks, we will unveil our presidential candidate, and rally support towards 2023 general election.”
