Malik Ado-Ibrahim, a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), says Nigerians need to look beyond party structure when voting in the 2023 elections.
At a parley in Abuja on Thursday, Ado-Ibrahim said what Nigerians need is a person who has vision.
“If you vote for a party that has failed you in the next election, you are dumb. There is no school, no healthcare, no security and you still go back to the same source, you don’t deserve to call yourselves Nigerians,” he said.
“What we need now is somebody, not a party. We need a visionary, not a symbol. I didn’t come here carrying an umbrella or a broom. I am a proud Nigerian. Nigeria is my problem, it is your problem, it is for every single person standing up.
“If you keep going after the party structure, even if they structure, look into the hearts and minds of the people who want to lead. Do they represent you? Your president is a reflection of your country.
“A visionary says what he will do. I’m not asking you people to vote for YPP. I really pray that Nigerians look at the visions of the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and what he is willing to do.
“We don’t want frail leaders. I want to see a president that will roll up their sleeves and fight for you, fight for greatness.”
