Group en­dorses Nda-Isa­iah for 2015

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Femi Aki­nola, La­gos

A po­lit­i­cal group, Sam for Nigeria, South­west zone, La­gos chap­ter, on Tues­day, en­dorsed Mr. Sam Nda-Isa­iah to con­test as pres­i­dent of Nigeria in 2015.

The group made the en­dorse­ment at a meet­ing of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of All Pro­gres­sive Congress (APC) at Chief Tele Olukoya Shop­ping com­plex at Okota area of La­gos.

Co­or­di­na­tor, Sam For Nigeria, South­west, La­gos chap­ter, Mr. La­teef Tele Olukoya, said Nige­ri­ans need a fresh per­son who is ded­i­cated, ma­tured in mind and have deep un­der­stand­ing on how to move the coun­try for­ward.

Ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing, Olukoya said, “Sam is a hon­est per­son who loves people and cares for the masses. This man we are clam­our­ing for his emer­gence as pres­i­dent of our coun­try is very bold, in­tel­li­gent and can tackle the prob­lem of ter­ror­ism that is threat­en­ing the con­tin­u­ous ex­is­tence of the coun­try to­day.

He said, “Apart from ter­ror­ism, there is also the prob­lem of hunger in Nigeria. We know that a lot of people are hun­gry and Sam NdaI­sa­iah knows how to turn the econ­omy in the di­rec­tion that will recog­nise agri­cul­ture as an­other main stay of our econ­omy. He is ded­i­cated and very fo­cus and has ca­pac­ity to grow or­ga­ni­za­tions from noth­ing to very big es­tab­lish­ment.

“He worked very hard to be­come what he is to­day and we be­lieve that is the kind of per­son that Nigeria need at this junc­ture. We are not both­ered about ethic or re­li­gious fac­tor, all we know and we are con­vinced be­yond doubt is that he has the qual­i­ties to lead the coun­try.

Women leader of the group, Mrs. Lola Ade­wale, said Nige­rian women are fed up with the ridicule which the present ad­min­is­tra­tion has brought the coun­try among comity of na­tions.
