Presidential candidate, Eunice Atuejide, has disclosed that if she loses the 2019 presidential election, she plans to contest for the presidency every four years until she becomes victorious.
The 39-year-old was elected the flag bearer of the National Interest Party (NIP) during the party’s national convention in Abuja on August 20, 2018.
She said, “I have already bought nomination form for 2023 just in case 2019 does not work. NIP, they know. I’ve told them; till I die, every four years, I’m coming back, so you people get ready. I don’t know who’s challenging me; I don’t know how they’ll prepare, but from today, I’m already preparing for 2023.
“I’m 39, by the time I’m 79, I’m still contesting in case I’ve not won. I will rule Nigeria. When it comes, when it’ll be, I have no control, but for the rest of my life, I’ll keep preparing.
“Every four years, I’ll come and present what I’ve prepared. If you people refuse me, no problem; I’ll go and prepare more and I’ll come back, ‘Okay now this is all the things I’ve done in addition to what I did four years ago’. If you refuse, I’ll go again and prepare some more. Till I die, every four years, you’ll see me.”
The lawyer also disclosed that she’ll always contest on the platform of the NIP because the party, registered in 2017, is committed to providing Nigeria with the sort of quality leadership it deserves.
“It’ll always be NIP because I do believe we’re on the right track in terms of providing the correct kind of government in Nigeria,” she said.
She said she decided to run for president because of the series of poor leadership that has plunged Nigeria into disarray. She said President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to provide quality leadership and must not be allowed to win re-election at next year’s polls.
She accused the president of being too focused on the past and his perceived political enemies that he’s not attending properly to the business of the country.
She said, “His most prominent failure is everything. Security, he failed; education, he failed. Buhari has not done anything right, he should go.
“Buhari has not done anything right as far as I’m concerned other than making sure the establishment are also suffering the pains that people are suffering and we do need to get rid of him. He doesn’t have any vision for Nigeria.
“You’ve seen him go all over the world and it has always been a big embarrassment for us each time he opens his mouth anywhere in the world. No policies, no ideas of where he wants to take Nigeria and Nigerians to.
