Presidential aspirant, Anyim talks up chances at 2023 polls

A former President of the Senate and a presidential aspirant in the 2023 election, Anyim Pius Anyim, on Thursday said he is experienced enough to serve as Nigeria’s president.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Anyim said this at his South-East Briefing and Consultation Session, which had in attendance stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the zone, in Enugu State.

According to him, “I have stood with our party, the PDP, in good and bad times. Like most loyal party members, I have had my moments of elation, as well as some difficult times but I never moved. I have never switched parties.

“Therefore, I make bold to say that I can be entrusted with the vision, mission, values and principles of PDP as a committed party man.

“I have been privileged to understand our national problems and appreciate their enormity and peculiarities in the last 21 years from my vantage positions in both the legislative and the executive arms of government. Therefore, I have a clear view of the task ahead as well as the solutions needed to advance the cause of our country.

“My records as President of the Senate and as Secretary to the Government of the Federation clearly show that I am more interested in building strong institutions than seeking enhancement of personal power or position. My records show effective and efficient management of the nation’s diversity on the basis of equity, justice, fairness and inclusiveness.

“I am a committed believer in the rule of law; and will always promote and protect the sanctity of lives as well as the rights and liberties of all citizens.”

Some of the South-East PDP leaders present at the event included Deputy Minority Leader, House of Reps, Toby Okechukwu; Obinna Ogba, Theodore Orji, Ama Nnachi, Chukwuka Utazi, Gilbert Nnaji, Senators Enyinnaya Abaribe, Nze Ozi Chukwu, former minister, Frank Nweke Jnr, among others.
