Ahead of 2019 general elections, a presidential aspirant and former deputy governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Prof. Kingsley Mogahlu, has formerly joined the Young Progressive Party (YPP), saying the party answered his questions on affirmative.
Making his official declaration on Thursday in Abuja, Prof. Moghalu described YPP as “a great dare, a tantalizing promise, a notice of evacuation to Nigeria’s recycled political party.
“So, I am here today to announce that in response to the parties of the past, in response to umbrellas that block out the light of hope, and brooms that sweep away truth and replace them with lies, in response to the parties of tired old tricks and tired old systems and tired old men, I and millions across Nigeria will choose the Young Progressive Party (YPP).”
While calling on Nigerians home and abroad to join him in YPP, the presidential aspirant said: “We need those who want to shake up the House of Representatives, to shake up the Houses of Assembly and shake up our Local Government councils across Nigeria to join us now, and work with us to execute our plans.”
Mogahlu said he has chosen YPP as a platform to realise his ambition because he wanted to inspire Nigerians to look to the future and not to the past.
