The Presidential candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (retd), says he wants to become the next President in 2023 to reposition the country.
The Security Head of late General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (retd) asserted that various indices show that the country is moving down the spiral since the Muhammadu Buhari government came into power in 2015.
Al-Mustapha claimed that his passion and love for Nigeria is the reason he is again running for the position of president come 2023 after various calls by Nigerians.
He stated this on Friday when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Al-Mustapha, however, said that he didn’t enter the presidential race for financial gains as some would think.
He said: “I decided this time around to answer to the calls of many Nigerian elders and younger ones from the North to the South and numerous associates with whom I have worked with, to accept the call and to contest.
“The passion we have for this country is much more in the sense that the challenges we face yesterday and the deep appreciation for where we are today is for only those who truly care.
“It is that sense of awareness, that commitment driven by the energy of patriotism that brought us to the fore to face politics.
“For the last seven years since I came out of prison, we have been undertaking research in and out of Nigeria, and our findings are extremely disturbing.
“What every committed Nigerian should do right now is to understand the enormity of the problems facing Nigeria
“The new world order is changing and we are not changing, the world is running with the moon and we are not, people are flying with the wind and we are not; time has changed and we remain stagnant.”
