Question and Answer.
Question: I have a question and the question is tied around the Niger Delta; Please with what is going on right now in the region, the federal gov. is not doing anything at all and it hurt me a lot. They (fed. gov.) promised a new Niger Delta @ the putting down weapons by the militants. We've not seen any change since then. The whole region is just getting worse by the day. If you become the president what would be your response to the problem in that region because the place has been neglected for so many years?
Answer: I don't know what the situation will be by the years 2011, I hope for the best because the people of Niger Delta have been oppressed for so long, and the oppression must be lifted. The first week that I'm in the office of the president, I will call for meeting with the elders and spoke person from that region to listen to their problems and find way to help every single Nigerian that live in that area. Few things I will not compromise; there must be affordable housing for the people that live in that region. Good hospitals, better schools and clean water. If there are any oil spill, it must be clean and the people in that area must be reimburse right way. Good roads will be available throughout the region. I must get picture report of that region quarterly to make sure that my promises to the people were kept.
Question: I understand but how will election be a thing of possible when President Yar a dua is sick and no one know is fate yet or can u conduct election with out the president's conscent?
Answer: Yes you can still conduct election even when the president is sick. The Presidency is not greater than the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. His sickness does not stop the country from running or moving forward. The only thing we can do is to pray for his health. Yes the election must go on.
Question: "MR Omosule, i have read your manifesto. But i have a question for you. Why did you think you are qualified to rule Nigeria, Please don't take this personally, who have you led before, what are your achievements, Why do you think Nigerians are ready for a change."
Answer: I am a leader who is competitive. Effective change leaders take calculated risks and challenge the status quo. They earn trust and gain cooperation from everyone including those who do not necessarily agree with the proposed changes. Nigeria is yearning for change. Nigerians are tired of the old way of doing business. And you don’t have to have any achievement to lead Nigeria in a right direction; you just have to have the leadership skills. As a CEO/President of two corporations, I have managed people effectively. The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it. We have to learn how to build leadership from the youth and I guess I would say that this is what I'm attempting to do right now. We need to bring back laborers, road menders, railway workers, cleaners, clerks, post office workers, create state and local police force; alternative means for constant electricity. You see, in our system leadership is by consent, not command. To lead a President must persuade. Personal contacts and experiences help shape his thinking. I need your support!
Question: Is ur party full Moslem party without a Christian in the key position, knowing how religiously and politically charged Nigeria is, you should be serious. I wish you luck. Tuesday, February 02, 2010 4:31:06 AM
Answer: Well our political party has no religion at all. We are all Nigerians and we will govern as one Nigeria. To be a person of faith is to have the world challenge that faith. The same reason of our constitution belief, if the people want to be sovereign and belong to different religions at the same time, then our official religion will have to be no religion at all. it was a bold experiment then as it is now. it wasn't meant to make us comfortable; it was meant to make us free.
Question: Why do you want to become Nigeria president sir? Tuesday, February 02, 2010 4:10:25 AM
Answer: I want to become Nigeria president because I want to do great things for the people not just for one political party or for my family or for my friends. I want to fight the war against poverty in our country. I want to unite the nation together again. I want Nigeria to be the giant of Africa. And I want to create over 15 million jobs second year that I'm in that office. I want to build schools that will meet today's technology, I want to build better hospitals for our communities, I want to renew our agricultural systems, constant electricity; yes we will get it done this time. I want to start social welfare for our elders who are over 65 years and older. I want to be president because these are the kind of problems presidential leadership can solve.
Question: how exactly do u plan to create 15million jobs? And how many jobs have u created so far in d US? I confirm to you that I have employed more than a thousand ppl in the U.S alone.
Answer: I’m glad you take the time to read my profile and ask such an important question, but your question did not have merit to my plans for Nigeria. I’m not running for the President of the United States of America, so it will be unwise to create jobs in a foreign land while my people are suffering. My main concern is to create a better environment for the Nigerian people. You see, I’m a Nigerian Citizen and I love Nigeria dearly, all my life I have been praying to God to use me and give me an opportunity to effect changes to my country. You said you created over 1,000 jobs in the United States of America, I pray that the Almighty God will continue to bless you so that you can double that number of jobs, but let it be here in Nigeria. United States of America is well established and it makes no sense to me for a Nigerian helping other Nation, such as the United States of America to grow while your people here in Nigeria are suffering. Or to have your companies head office in another nation whiles all the resources you need are here in Nigeria, Or to build mansion in a neighbouring country while your people are sleeping on a mat here in Nigeria. I don’t mean to sound harsh but for me, I think it will make a lot of sense to help my nation first. Because if you die tomorrow, the United States of America will not send your money to your people in Nigeria. Or shift your business to Nigeria for you. You cannot move a building. We have to change the way we think, the way we talk and the way our people do business in Abroad. To answer your first question, how my administration would be able to create over 15 million jobs? It’s easy. Think about it, if Nigeria is over 150 million in population and if we have 15 million policemen to keep our street safe, that is not too much for the kind of security we need now in Nigeria. Or if we have four massive highway that link East to West and North to South, another four massive high speed train lines that circle Abuja like a set of rings. Think about the maintenance crew and employees and the people who will benefit from selling to the customers at each train station. If we can build high rise hotels, we can build high rise federal building and state building in every city. Think about the numbers of employees that will fill in those building. Let’s think of micro lending to the entrepreneurship who will hire more people to grow their business, or we think about giving incentive to an existing businesses who must hired five or more employees. Think about how many jobs that will create. Or think about if we persuade some of the giant companies from foreign country to build factories in Nigeria. Or we encourage our engineers to start factories where we will be producing cars that are fully operated on solar energy. We can make our economy grow this way, it just depends on who has the willingness to do good for our Country, and that has always been my intention. What about if we give more licenses to telephone companies in Nigeria to drive the cost of minutes down on our handset, or to talk about our Energy plan, either wind turbines, solar, or geothermal which will create over 5 million jobs for our people, or the 72 better hospitals that will accommodate over 5,000 beds in each hospital. Think about the jobs that alone will create. A leader has to have a vision and not just any kind of vision but a vision that will be clear and doable. So creating a job in another country to me is absolutely irrelevant to the situation of our country. Don’t forget that in the United States of America you’re talking about, their government has already set up an environment to help their people to create jobs. We don’t have that here in Nigeria. An average Nigeria is thinking about how to feed himself and his family. And those who have businesses are worrying about how to protect their businesses from thieves and fraud. 15 million jobs are even small for the size of economy we need in Nigeria but it’s just the beginning. We will do more. And we must do more.
Question: Thanks for your honesty. How do you intend to fight or eliminate the practice of godfatherism in our system of government? The likes of IBB, Atiku etc. have all made their intentions known for the upcoming presidential election. With all due respect sir, I beg to differ. Your intentions, agenda are exactly the same with other politicians. Are you a politician OR a visionary?. Politicans are identified by their political parties but a visionary defines the rhetorics and set the tones for his political party. God bless.
Answer: Thank you for the reply, the godfatherism is in within the political party of PDP as far as we know it because they are the only political party who has been ruling us since 1996. As for me, I am a concerned citizen politician on an existing political party of Masses Movement of Nigeria (MMN). I have made it cleared to the Masses Movement of Nigeria Political party officials that I will listen to their advice but the final decision will ultimately comes from me. And that means I don't take order from anyone but only on my view on the policy and agenda that will benefit the citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. If I tell you something today either its new or sound the same to what you've heard before from other politicians, I will be making a false promises to you and to over 140 million of Nigerians out there, So I won't but I will only advice you to be patient with me and see my work and the direction that I'm about to take Nigeria to in 2011. All I know is that I want the people of Nigeria to taste what’s a good government actually feels like. For our elders to eat that our national cake too. And for our teachers to be able to have all the tools in the world so that our youths can compete with the rest of the world academically, for our police officers to actually do things by the book and to create another police dept who will be policing our policemen. I just happen to be a visionary who is seeking for that higher position. A position that I know I can execute with any reservation to tribalism or favourism. I know I can do better because I believe in myself, and I believe in every Nigerians that we are entitle to a better government, a government that don’t lie, a government that don’t over reach, a government that doesn’t waste its resources, an effective and efficient government, that is what I can only promise you and to all your friends and family because I also have friends and family who deserve a better government. I know we’ve been suffering for so long and why not just do what is right for the country we love so dearly, Nigeria.
We are a political party of an idea for Peace, Unity and Justice.
