2023 Election: Nigeria needs a new breed of leaders – Olawepo-Hashim

A leader in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, has called for a new set of leaders to develop Nigeria.

He said Nigerians cannot afford to choose a president among those who have been politicians since 1999 and expect positive changes in the country.

Olawepo-Hashim who was once a presidential candidate told reporters in Lagos about the importance of maintaining a clean break from the past.

He also hinted about his intention to run for President.

He said: “The truth is that some of those who have stayed too long in the status quo have become part of the corrupt system, and it is an illusion to expect corruption to fight corruption.”

“Either in the APC or the PDP or any other party, those whose only job has been to change from one government office to another and have never done any other productive thing apart from squandering government money, driving convoys of cars around that they do not feel themselves, escorted by security paid for by the government, are far removed from the true realities of Nigeria. They are, therefore, incapable of comprehending the urgency and depth of transformation Nigeria needs.

“I laugh when I read about someone who has never even set up a barber’s shop in his or her life promising young people employment. These are people who do not even understand how businesses run.”
