Presidential Aspirant Kingsley Moghalu sits “On The Couch With Falz & Laila” | WATCH



In the latest episode of On The Couch With Falz and Laila, hosts Falz and Laila Johnson-Salami speak to presidential aspirant Professor Kingsley Moghalu.

Here are some of the points he made:

  • He wants to be president to address the poverty situation in a country like Nigeria with so much potentials.
  • He’s tired of sitting on the fence, of living a good life for himself, of being a technocrat and being frustrated by the decisions of dumb, crooked politicians. He wants to be president to make a change.
  • He intends to achieve his goal by first studying what drives successful economies, which he says are: Property Rights, Innovation, and Capital.
  • He says the above three things can only come by having citizens with “productive knowledge,” which comes with 21st century relevant education.
  • He says state police is necessary. State police should come after restructuring.
  • Restructuring should not be based on states but on geopolitical zones.
  • SARS needs to be sanitised, re-trained, and also be increased. He says sometimes they cannot be different from armed robbers.
  • It is very possible to change the police force in a president’s first 4 years.
  • There’ll be four critical offices in the presidency if I become president. They will be: Office of National Strategy, National Office of Risk Management, Office of Performance Management, and Office of Human Capital Development.
  • These offices will be manned by professionals, not politicians.
  • His administration will target and achieve 50 – 50 appointment policy for men and women.
  • He’ll have a more sophisticated understanding of national security – what causes it? lack of education, unemployment, exposure to radicalism.
  • We might have to build a wall; Nigeria’s borders need to be secured.
  • To fight rape culture, it is the responsibility of the government to set up a re-education curriculum to change behaviour. Traditional rulers should also be brought on board.
  • When becomes president, his administration will set up a N1 trillion venture capital fund and the government will own a part of the recipient’s business.
  • Buhari-administration’s N500bn social investment fund is a pipeline of waste. It does not create wealth, but creates dependency.
  • To improve education, his government will retrain teachers, reform the curricula, change the way students learn, and reform educational infrastructure.
  • His administration will focus more on foreign direct investment in the educational sector.

    Generation too posh to vote, not interested in politics.

    Just 2 comments on something that affects every facet of your life. But if it is a video of a thieving politician’s child, you will regale us with your oohs and haaa and be tapping rubbish.

    Continue by the time you can’t even afford jollofrice for party your eyes will open.

      Because they are not interested in politics doesn’t mean they need to suffer ooh – Please stop making arguments for infringement on inalienable rights of human beings.

      There is a real need for reorientation of mindset in this nation. People don’t even know when they are making arguments for the foundations of slavery.

      What is required is a fixed framework that stops people in “politics” from infringing on the inalienable rights of human beings and with very serious consequences when they do.

      So for example we shouldn’t have to vote to say “hey please dont ruin my life” – just by being alive there are a number of things that can be assumed.

      We need to stop all this stupidity that allows people with the lowest IQ making decisions (without consequence) that affects scientifically proven inalienable rights of human beings!

      Its like allowing a person with no scientific skill sets ( i wanted to use market woman here) performing open heart surgery on you or the entire nation! (in a market)

      You can just imagine the number of things that will go wrong, even if you were to survive the initial operation.

    Mr, Dr. Prof. Moghalu, you have my vote!

    Laila and Falz nodded in agreement throughout the interview as Prof. Moghalu answered all their questions with innovative ideas to back his argument. He is articulate and seems to have the necessary experience to be a great president. If only Nigerians did not vote along religious and tribal lines, this won’t be such an uphill battle.

    He is clearly the best candidate.

      How many “Nelson Mandela” type lawyers do you know?

      Do you even know Nelson Mandela’s history?

    Laila should allow him to speak without interrupting! Always cutting in and deviating. Interviewing like she already crammed the questions with statistics to back. Why not be in the moment and allow him speak especially when he’s saying something very important. Ask questions that brings clarification so that your audience better understands his thinking process.
    Surprised she didn’t ask her normal gay questions.

    For instance, she just cut him off asking a very irrelevant question while he was talking passionately about the waste culture of this present administration. That wasn’t necessary at all. Someone is analysing how unproductive giving people N5k amd what he is going to do instead you are asking his greatest regret???? Abeg Laila! If you claim to be educationally smart, follow through on such conversations, not only when you don’t have data to match the conversation.

    No question, he’s the person for the job. I wish he mentioned that meritocracy trumps 50-50, but his book clarifies that. If we are truly tired of useless, substandard deliverables from government, this is the person we should all FORCEFULLY work with.
