The presidential candidate of the Alliance Congress Party of Nigeria Oby Ezekwesili on Monday unveiled her manifesto and programs for the 2019 presidential election.

Ezekwesili during a press conference in Lagos, which she titled “From Poverty Central To Prosperity: How The ‘Oby’ Ezekwesili Presidency Will Lift 80+ Million Nigerians Out Of Poverty” describing the document as a roadmap, an inclusive and prosperous country where there is equality of opportunity for all.

According to the former minister of Education, the excessive powers of the Federal Government are partially responsible for the stunted growth and poverty of the states and regions hence her government will lead an economic-based dialogue to correct the structural imbalance that has hobbled the states and created the failure of our fiscal federalism in its practice.

The failure of the power sector is the clearest proof of what can happen when the Federal Government refuses to let go of its control.

She added that  failure of the power sector is responsible for the situation where 190 million Nigerians manage about 3,500 megawatts of power, whereas, South Africa with 50 million people generates in excess of 50,000 megawatts.

How can a nation be productive without access to energy? We need complete and true deregulation of the sector. We can lift many of our citizens out of poverty by filling the infrastructure gaps.

Ezekwesili, who was Nigeria’s former Minister of Education as well as Solid Minerals, also reiterated her call on Nigerians to reject the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019.
