Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has revealed his plan concerning 2023 presidential ambition.
According to him, he is partnering with God to become the President of Nigeria so as to rescue the country
He added that he is not eyeing the vice presidency as erroneously assumed in some quarters.
It should be noted that he is one of the presidential aspirants under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party and has been touring the country for consultations.
He made this remark during a prayer conference held at Banquet Hall, Government House, Uyo, on Sunday.
He noted that Nigeria needs a visionary leader who is prepared to lead the country without self-aggrandizement, adding that he believes Nigeria can come out of its present condition with the right leader who will address its problems in the economy, education and other sectors begging for attention.
According to him, “I am not entering the race to be Vice President, I am entering the race so I can partner with God to be the President of Nigeria.
“I think Nigeria has reached a point where God has to intervene, if God does not intervene in 2023 we should forget it.
’’God is looking for a leader this time to partner with in order to rescue and restore this country and if we all fold our arms thinking that I don’t want to be blackmailed, misconstrued or misunderstood, we will continue to be where we are. There must be someone who will tell God here am I send me.
“There must arise someone who is going not for self-aggrandizement not for what he can gain, but for what God can use him to do. I am stepping out to say to God if you need a man to partner because we’ve not recognized that God needs somebody to partner to rescue Nigeria, Lord, here am I send me I am available’’.
He further remarked that leaders should be confident in themselves.
