Soyinka’s endorsement excites Moghalu

Blessing towing Company

Dr. Kingsley Moghalu, the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has described the endorsement of his candidature by Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, as “humbling.”

Moghalu, in a statement, said that the endorsement was important because of Soyinka’s reputation and the “elaborate process” his Citizen Forum went through before reaching its decision.

“Our party – the Young Progressives Party – and I, salute the courage and the good judgment of the Nobel Laureate and icon of democratic struggle in Nigeria,” Moghalu said in the statement.

Soyinka, had announced on Friday the decision of his Citizen Forum to throw its weight behind Moghalu, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, describing him as the most qualified among the presidential candidates.

“As Soyinka and the Citizen Forum have ended their search for a consensus candidate to lead the country in a new direction, I appeal to other Nigerians desirous of a new dawn, ushered by a competent and visionary leadership to also consider ending theirs with my candidacy.

“We all should now approach the ballot with a single purpose of defeating the recycled old politicians,” Moghalu said.

The YPP candidate said he would form an inclusive government if he becomes president.

“Working with Nigerians from all parts of the country, including our women and youth, we will transform our country from division to unity; we will create jobs and foster prosperity; and we will restore respect for Nigeria in the world,” Moghalu said. 0
