Former Deputy Central Bank of Nigeria Governor (CBN) and presidential aspirant, Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has accused career politicians in the country, saying that they are behind spreading the falsehood of rotational presidency so that Nigerians won't elect good leader.

Moghalu who spoke in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, during the inauguration of Kingsley Moghalu Support Organization at Monablis hotels, argued that since the many problems plaguing the country were not zoned, it was a miff for anyone to believe in a rotational presidency.

He said the position of President of the country is for any competent Nigerian whom people found worthy of keeping the responsibility irrespective of where he/she comes from.

“There is no zoning in the Nigeria constitution. It is a Miff that the presidency is not the turn of anywhere. The presidency is the turn of any competent Nigerian whom Nigerian people found worthy of keeping the responsibility of becoming president of federal republic of Nigeria.

“We are in a democracy and I think it is time we stopped wasting our time on this discussion. The career politicians who are selling this falsehood do not want you to elect good leaders. They want you to remain in poverty and joblessness. Is that what Nigerians want? Time has come to select a Nigerian who can do the job. A Nigerian who can fix the country.

“It does not matter where that person comes from. Let me ask you a question, is unemployment zoned? Is poverty zoned to any part of this country? Is no electricity zoned? So, if our problems are not zoned to anybody, why should selecting leadership that will fix these problems zoned?” he said.

The Presidential hopeful said if elected, he would heal Nigeria and restore its economy as well as create jobs to address the growing unemployment and poverty.

“My first priority is to heal Nigeria. Then, we have to restore Nigeria's economy. So, those are very important priorities. Again, creating jobs. Addressing unemployment and poverty which the country is sinking deeper into.”

Moghalu urged Nigerians to get their voters card and vote carefully during general elections, adding: “You have to study a candidate carefully not just based on sentiment, religion or tribalism and kind of things. No! Our politicians are ones promoting these divisive tendencies but I urged Nigerians to reject it and vote carefully in 2019 general elections.”

Moghalu who recently declared his intention to run for the position of the president of Nigeria told his support group in Abakaliki, he would soon unveil the political platform in which he will contest the election come 2019.

As a Technocrat, he also promised to fight Piracy by properly and specifically tasking the law enforcement agencies toward that direction if voted into power.

“Our law enforcement agencies have not been tasked specifically with the fight against piracy, piracy of intellectual property. We have copyright law in this country. So, we need to pay more attention to that,” he added.
