A former presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Charles Udeogaranya, has charged the electorate to reject political celebrities during the 2023 general election and throw their weight behind “unknown” Nigerians who are desirous of transforming the country.

Udeogaranya, who gave this charge while speaking with select journalists in Lagos, yesterday, noted that Nigeria’s transformation would not come “from the political celebrities but from deeply concerned men and women outside the box.”

According to him, “Nigerians’ thought process limits them from giving opportunities to the unknown, forgetting that if any miracle should occur, it won’t come from the political celebrities but from deeply concerned men and women outside the box.”

He noted that for Nigeria to reverse the current slide on virtually all fronts in the country, her next president must be someone who understands that COVID-19 has redefined the world economy from the physical industrial age to virtual industrial age, adding that the person must be willing to double up efforts towards provision of basic human necessities such as food, shelter, education and health care at affordable costs.

He posited that that less focus should be given to some infrastructural projects, arguing that “they drain funds and seem to equip locations that are unfit to render its full utilisations.”

Udeogaranya pointed out that Nigeria could be better for all “if our political class can help to elect a president who is willing to better the lot of all Nigerians,” adding, “I stand out as a morning star in this regard.”
