Two-term governor of Ogun State and Senator representing Ogun Central, Ibikunle Amosun on Thursday declared to run for President in 2023, unfolding eight-point agenda to lift the country out of the woods

The chartered accountant turned politician made the formal declaration at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Central Business District Abuja.

Senator Amosun had said among others,

“The two pillars of the agenda that I will elaborate in the weeks ahead are national security and economic development,” he said. “Upon these two pillars, we will create a national architecture for human flourishing that is unprecedented in our national history.

“Based on these two pillars, we will erect a national agenda which, apart from national security and economic development, will include healthcare, education agriculture and food security, infrastructural rural and urban development, technology, innovation, and digital economy, and nation-building.

“Guided by the unprecedented investment in human security, the integration of the eight areas of this carefully planned agenda for national reawakening will, within four years, unleash unparalleled human resources that will make Nigeria proud of their motherland.

“It bears repeating that Nigeria has the required manpower, both at home and abroad to accomplish this agenda. Under my leadership, we will mobilize Nigeria’s immense human and natural resources to rebuild our education sector, healthcare, and infrastructure, including electricity, roads, and water supply.”

Amosun who was recently forgiven of anti-party behaviour during the run-up to the 2019 governorship election, joins the rank of other presidential hopefuls like the Vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Ekiti governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Senator Rochas Okorocha, Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, and the Minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige among others.
