Ex Senatorial Candidate, Egwu releases wish list, tasks Tinubu, Govs, Lawmakers on quality leadership

As Nigeria welcomes a new set of political leaders, foremost politician, Evangelist Reuben Uche has charged the newly elected President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the Governors, and members of the National Assembly to take a departure from the outgoing leaders by quickly addressing issues that have plagued the nation within the last 8 years.

He gave the charge while fielding questions from journalists on expectations as the nation begins another phase of political development. Egwu stated that it is high time politicians begin to see themselves as the servant of the people, not as an avenue to amass wealth because of unhindered access to the treasury.

Egwu who lost the Ebonyi South Senatorial seat to Engr. David Umahi of the All Progressives Congress said his wish for the country was to speedily address far-reaching issues, assured he will be playing advisory roles to keep the elected in checks.

He emphasized the need for the incoming government of Asiwaju Tinubu to factor the nation’s ideological plurality by running a unity government that calms frayed nerves and heals national wounds while, maintaining probity, accountability and transparency in governance.

The ex Senatorial Candidate of Action Alliance stressed the importance of competence, urging the newly elected leaders to appoint those with proven competence and capacity to execute assigned tasks.

“I will expect the incoming government to run a unity government, by spreading positions across the 773 council areas of the country.

“Importantly also, the incoming government must engage every certified unemployed Nigerian whether literate or not in monthly salary payment with general free Health Insurance, this will reduce poverty-related deaths and increase life expectancy.

” I also wanted to move a motion that will have our salaries as Senators slashed by 50% with the rest channelled to rural infrastructures like roads, markets, schools, hospitals, water and electricity.

“All over the world, the government runs on transparency and accountability anything outside this, is opaque and self-serving.
“You can bear me witness that stalled government projects littered everywhere were never awarded or premised on what I have just told you.

“This new government will be leaving legacies posterity will deal generously with if they can run with this wish list”, he said.
