2023 election: Why I want to be Nigeria’s president – Nwankwo



By Emmanuel Afonne

A United States-based mechanical engineer, Mr. Godswill Nwankwo, has declared his intention to contest the seat of the country’s president in the 2023 election.

Nwankwo made his intention known on Monday in a telephone interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) in Abuja.

He said his intention arose out of concerns to build on existing structures and improve the standard of living in the country.

According to the presidential candidate, the country must be repositioned economically to maintain its status as the best economy in Africa and “giant of Africa”.

Nwankwo, who is from the Ukwa East local government region in Abia, also said he would revise the country’s constitution and positively revise the police command structure, among others.

“When I am elected, my first line of action will be to revise the constitution.

“In addition, the police command structure will be reviewed.

“There’s what we call community policing where you allow people who belong to that community to monitor or protect the communities they serve.

“For example, you don’t expect an Igbo man to go to Sokoto state and police a community; the language will be his main obstacle in this type of structure because he does not understand the Hausa-Fulani language.

“We want a situation where, for example, the people of Sokoto are in charge of their police, the communities of Abia watched over by their people, and at the end of the day you have state and local government police.

“This structure should not be influenced by the federal government.

“So my first assignment will be to start addressing the issue of the constitution and come up with recommendations that will work for Nigerians,” Nwankwo said.

He said that while he had not yet decided on which political platform to challenge, his main obligation would be to the citizens.

“I have been contacted by several political parties. In the end, my only commitment will be the manifesto, the agenda and what I promised the Nigerians before the elections.

“I will not let anything get in the way of my promise once elected and there will be no hindrance that will prevent me from fulfilling my promises.

“The 2023 election will be a decision for Nigerians to elect a constitutional value that will affect the core values ​​and the lives of their children and grandchildren.

“When I emerge as president, it will be Nigeria and not the PDP, APC, APGA or any political party and so on; I will stop at nothing to see that Nigerians are secure and prosperous.

“I will also ensure that Nigerians are able to access the opportunity that we will offer them and also be able to have access to the law enforcement agencies who are supposed to protect them,” he added. .

Nwankwo added that his manifesto, which can be viewed on “”, was designed to ensure that when he becomes president, Nigerians will have the right to equal rights, liberty, liberty, justice and opportunity.

He said the focal point of his administration would be for every citizen to be happy and safe while performing their rightful duties.

NAN reports that Nwankwo had previously worked for Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes INTEQ and several national and multinational companies in Nigeria and abroad.

He holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) from Rivers State University.

He also holds a Master of Science (MSc)in Computer Science with a specialization in Cognitive Artificial Intelligence from Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas.

The presidential candidate also earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Finance with a focus on Private Equity and Investments from the University of Houston CT Bauer College of Business in Houston, Texas. (NOPE)
