    Well… the charlatans who have been imposed/unleashed on us in the past haven’t done anything for this country. It’s time bolder young people stand up! All I’ll say is I hope it won’t be business as usual when we get there!

    um, no. I’m sorry but we’re not just going to vote because you think you’re young. We need leaders who also have experience in leadership positions.

    Hian, how can he be contesting for election in November and by July has not declared party affiliation?
    It is either a joke or he is unserious.

    I don’t trust anyone who claims they can create a change by going into politics. Change can start from anywhere. some of the best “changers” in Nigeria and in the world are not politicians.

    Great dream and am all for people who dream and push but how can you run for governorship when you have not led any outstandibg public/ political office?
    Any real community organizing, Mr. Yul?
    For all the youth out there dreaming about politics, you got to start from somewhere.

    Nigerians should stop putting people with no track record of SUCCESSFUL leadership into political offices. We need people who, have led before and have EVIDENCE to show how great they are in leading!
    Nigeria”s problems over the years, are not just corruption but inexperienced, VISIONLESS leaders!

    Political parties and / or whoever picks people to run for public offices in Nigeria, pleased take note.
    Citizens can only vote for people you nominate. If you present ignorant candidates before them, people will have no choice but to pick one of those presented to them.
    It is about time Nigerians stop the cabal from ruinning our political system and space.

    My opinion : We should figure out a way to encourage, people with vision, creative ideas, zeal , good health, experience to run for offices. We should figure out a way to make it affordable to run for public offices.
    When running for offices become very exorbitant, cabals with wicked and selfish intentions, bring in their ill gotten wealth and sponsor candidates, then hold the entire country to ransom.

    We should also known the health status of candidates before they are voted for.
    Am not even a president but my employers know my health status

    May God bless Nigeria and anyone who truly wishes her well!!!

    I love his courage. Those of you saying you need people with political experience welldone. I presume ” 8 years experience in corruption “. Change can only happen in our country if energetic youths come out and fight the old and weak politician. The current president of France is below fourty years. Its high time youths of Nigeria stand up and contest for leadership.

    Cool he can run as an independent candidate like in civilized countries but he ought to have prepared himself earlier because prayerful preparation prevents poor performance.Enough of old cargoes&dead woods.
