Ex-PDP publicity secretary joins presidential race

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) former Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, says Nigeria needs a president that will truly be a Commander-In-Chief to all Nigerians.
Accordingly, Gbenga OlawepoHashim has promised to solve Nigeria’s leadership and economic challenges if elected in 2019.
Though he lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for his sacrifices to the nation, but the presidential aspirant said Nigeria urgently needs a president with a different orientation- one with pan Nigeria ideology.
The presidential aspirant, who is running on the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), said a broad-minded president such as he would be is what Nigeria now needs to fix its economic and other problems.
He disclosed this when he picked his nomination form at the party’s headquarters in Abuja midweek.
“I am, therefore, better placed to bring the country back together.
I am most assured I can get the job done given my record of accomplishment.
“I will restructure the economy from a dependent one to a self-reliant economy by investing in iron and steel, research and development, and in other sectors.
“These critical sectors include chemical and machine tools, so as to generate the production of capital goods, local capital and to bring in prosperity through the needed multipliers.
“The agricultural sector will be integrated with the industrial and solid minerals sectors, to create sustainable jobs for youths employment.
“It is, however, regrettable that the former colonial masters now ridicule the nation, and even more regrettable that the APC and previous leaders lack the skill to correct things.”
