An Italy based Nigerian business mogul, Francis Onabis has declared his intention to contest for the seat of the President in next year’s general election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It would be recalled that Francis Onabis is a Presidential aspirant in the 2011 general election and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Esan area of Edo State.
Onabis who is currently the President and CEO of Mattia Holdings Limited, a financial and marketing consulting company in Cyprus and Stillwater Limited in Italy, noted that he had no political experience but his love for the country and desire for change motivated him.
Speaking with our correspondent, he said he had acquired good governance knowledge and experience by staying outside the shore of the country and he is ready to inject it to govern Nigeria to make the nation great.
Onabis who was recently awarded the fellowship award of the chartered institute of commerce of Nigeria, said if given the opportunity to serve, he will eradicate unemployment in the country and provide basic amenities for the Nigerian masses.
Speaker further, he lamented the complete breakdown of Nigeria’s infrastructures, economy, and security to both people of Nigeria and poverty also attributing it to the failure of the ruling party, which have been in power since 1999.
While condemning the government of the ruling party (PDP), He said “they run the government of Nigeria as their own personal property, government should not be run like that, Nigeria belong to all us and any person who is elected to a public office must understand he or she is there to serve the people, PDP have ruled Nigeria for the past 12 years Nigeria is not better off thanks to their way of ruling.”
He noted that the last twelve years of the ruling party has only seen their party members getting richer while the Nigerian masses are wallowing in abject poverty.
“No regular power supply, the PDP just don’t get the priorities right in Nigeria, in the last 12 years, they have made their member’s richer and the Nigerian masses poorer, provision of infrastructures has become a thing of who you know, infrastructures are for the people of Nigeria whichever party they may belong, they have made their party member richer and the masses poorer” he said.
