Kwankwaso who made this statement during the official commissioning of the House of Reps candidate to represent Aniocha and Oshimili federal constituency Campaign Office under the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Mr. Anthony Onochie Ochei, said the party is prepared to take mantle of leadership from the ruling APC government.

While thanking the people of Delta state for their massive supports and turnouts to welcome him, Kwankwaso said he has no doubt that the candidate of the party representing Aniocha and Oshimili federal constituency, Mr. Anthony Onochie Ochei will come out with a landslide victory at the poll during forthcoming elections with what he has seen on ground.

He said, “We have seen friends, we have seen supporters, we seen so many people who came out to see us as we arrive at the boarder between Edo state and Delta state, and we are particularly grateful to the Delta state Chairman of the party and the entire members of the executives at the state, local government and wards level.

“I also thank the gubernatorial candidate, national and state Houses of assembly and all stakeholders who have been working round the clock to ensure that this party is in every community, every house. We thank God we are not in PDP or APC as these two parties have finished their turn, dead and buried. I appeal to all to come out and support our Party for a new Nigeria.

“The old Nigeria we are, where the masses are suffering and no body talking about education, that is why in our manifesto we made it clear that we are going to change the educational system where everyone will have access to education for free. Children in the streets will begin to go to school, as we planning to build 500,000 class rooms, where there will not be payment for NECO, WAEC or Jamb.

On NNPP and LP alliance, Kwankwaso, expressed regret that the NNPP/LP alliance did not work, that if it had worked there would be current contemplation of run-off presidential poll in 2023 because he and Obi would have won by a landslide.

On insecurity, Kwankwaso lamented how insecurity has affected everything and both the economy, saying he would increase the number of police personnel from 230,000 to one million, and military from 250,000 to one million, adding that he is not opposed to restructuring and 13 percent derivation.

According to him, insecurity has reduced oil production to one million barrels per day from 2.2mbp; affected solid minerals mining, and harmed agricultural production, which he said he would tackle if elected to generate revenue to fix the economy, infrastructure, and education among others.

Also speaking, the Federal House of Reps candidate under the platform of NNPP, Mr. Anthony Onochie Ochei, at the commissioning of the Ochei’s Campaign Office assured Aniocha and Oshimili constituents of equal and quality representation if elected to represent them at the national assembly.

Ochei who is a Fellow of the Chartered Accountant of Nigeria and Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria with over 20 years experience in public and private sectors, promise to attract meaningful development to his people if elected to serve at the national assembly.

Highlighting some of his top agenda and programmes, such as education, empowerment and skill acquisition, Ochei said he would run an open door policy where he will quarterly engage his people on interactive session to know how to address some of their immediate needs at the grassroot.

Ochei said he is contestinh on the platform of NNPP because the All Progressive Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have failed at the local government, state and at the national, because of bad leadership, but that NNPP has a developmental programmes that will enhance the living of the people.

He said, “I served as special assistant to Hon. Minister of Transport for four years. Also served as Internal Consultant to Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development for two years and equally consulted for numerous Committees of the Senate and House of Representatives, several Ministries, Departments and Agencies at federal level.”
