2023 Presidential Election: Doyin Okupe To Slug It Out With Bola Tinubu

Despite high focus on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the position of Nigeria President come 2023, former Presidential Spokesperson, Dr. Doyin Okupe has officially declared his intention too to contest for the post.

Okupe, a member of PDP will be slugging it out with the APC Chieftain, Bola Tinubu in South-West as the next presidential election in Nigeria draws near.

His intention to contest came to the public glare today, 5th of October, 2021 through a Press Statement issued by him. In his words, ”I believe I have the knowledge, the requisite national political experience and intellectual capacity and wisdom to halt the socio economic decadence, Insecurity and pervasive poverty that has nearly made living meaningless in Nigeria.

” I want to run a government which for the first time will make the life, wellbeing and safety of lives and properties especially of the Poor and needy a major priority.

He also promised that if given the mandate, he will radically change and overhaul the budgeting process to be people oriented than the fraudulent budgets we have run year in year out for the last 60 odd years.
He said 30% of national budget from 2023 under his administration will be devoted fully towards Social Welfare of the Nigerian people. The wealth of the nation will be enjoyed by the nationals not multinationals, foreign contractors and elites in the country.

Meanwhile, the endorsement he got from some Lagos monarchs recently too has made many seeing him going for the presidency in 2023.
