#NotTooYoungToRun: 36-year-old set to challenge Buhari in 2019
A 36-yr old Software Technologist, Malam Adamu Garba ll has declared his intention to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 general election.
This is coming five days after president Buhari signed into law the too young to run act which pave way to young politicians to run for the office of president in the subsequent elections.
Addressing a press confrence in Kano on Saturday, Garba ll, said he would contest for the highest political seat in compliance with the not too young to run act which president Buhari signed into law recently.
Garba said he would slog it out with president Buhari in the primary election because he would contest for the seat under the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
He said, “As somebody who went through the Almajiri education system, who hawks sugarcane and beans cake (Akra) and who also scavenged for several years before I ventured into software business, I knew much about the problem of Nigeria.
“My desire is to come up with new Nigeria that will give equal opportunity to all irrespective of their religion or ethnic backgrounds. I intend to come up with a new method of leadership that will take this country to the promising land.
“If elected president of Nigeria, my plan is to establish what I termed as Nigeria National Grand Strategy which comprises laudable economic programmes. Economic prosperity will be my administration’s central focass.”
Garba ll explained that if elected president, he would give priority to primary school education, economic, security, agriculture and commerce among other sectors.
“My plan is to make Nigeria among the top 45 countries that globally excel in the areas of economic. I will ensure that by 2045, Nigeria will have a new order in all human endeavours,” he concluded.
He said although president Buhari has done a lot in the areas of security, fight against corruption and economy and he was also an honest man, but the system was still faulty.
Garba, who is also the chief executive officer of IPI Solution, a private software company based in Lagos state, said, “I am contesting for president in order to fix the system for a better Nigeria.”
