The Social Democratic Party (SDP) presidential candidate, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has expressed his readiness to fix Nigeria and rescue the country from myriad of problems.
He therefore urged the Nigerian electorate to join in the battle to fix Nigeria by electing him president in the 2023 presidential polls.
Adebayo, a legal practitioner, made the pledge Tuesday at the 10th leadership lecture of the CSLCMO to unveil the ‘Get Involved Book’ ceremony held at the Nigeria Army Resource Centre in Abuja.
Speaking on the theme: “Fixing the future conversations”, the presidential candidate noted that to fix Nigeria, government and Nigerians must avoid damaging it further.
According to him, “To fix anything, you have to avoid damaging it further, which means that you have to be a subject matter expert in what you are fixing. You have to know what went wrong.
“If we go with the same attitude from the previous elections, we will get at best the same result and most likely, a worst result.
“The problem of Nigeria is the basic lack of truth. We don’t like the truth, of course, we like some truth if it is the truth against somebody but if it’s the truth against us, we don’t like it.
“We also want to do justice but we don’t want justice that costs us anything. Everything is wrong with the other person, but nothing is ever wrong with us.
“Let me end this by saying that if we want to fix Nigeria, we must make up our mind. I have seen people who want to fix themselves into positions.
“I have seen people who want to fix Nigeria but they don’t want to acknowledge that they are the cause of the problems, they believe they are innocent. Everybody is part of the problem one way or the other.
“For me, I want to fix the country and these are the tools that I have, these are my spanners. My spanner is the truth and the truth does not exclude things that don’t favour me.”
He continued, “Over the years, Nigeria has gone through deliberate sabotage by beneficiaries, but running and fixing Nigeria isn’t a difficult situation.
“Our country is not a difficult country to live in and run, what the country has gone through is deliberate sabotage by the beneficiaries.
“In a situation where you are asking questions about fixing a country, by law and the constitution only Nigerians can fix Nigeria.
“So you see that the people who damaged Nigeria are the ones who still want to fix Nigeria. The first thing we need to do is fix ourselves.
“What I will say to Nigerians is what I say to my mechanic, do you understand what’s wrong with this car? We need to start from there.”
Adebayo, therefore called on all well meaning Nigerians to join hands and collectively assign a candidate with determination to fix the country during the 2023 general elections period.
