Ibrahim Dankwambo, Governor of Gombe State and a presidential aspirant, says he will declare war on poverty and injustices in Nigeria if elected president come 2019.
Dankwambo, who is seeking to be the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside Atiku Abubakar, said such fight would be the number one priority of a leader in order to ensure the happiness of citizens.
The governor also dismissed rumours that he had backed out of the presidential race.
Cable quoted him saying, ‘I am running. And I will win. Extensive consultations have been done and Nigerians will soon see a wind of genuine renaissance blowing all over their land.
“I have come to the realisation that what Nigeria needs at this time is a man who can take the country on a journey to its best self, a man who can re-energise a people who have been so badly led that they have accepted a certain impotence as the reality of their lives.
“Nigeria needs a man who can fire its imagination, release the people from shackles and make them blossom. I am the man. I don’t want to just be president, I want to be the leader of a 180 million-strong army of achievers.”
“President is just a title. What Nigeria needs is a leader, a warrior on the frontline in the fight against poverty and all kinds of injustices our people are suffering today,” Dankwambo said.
