Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has kicked off his campaign with a free online copy of his book, BIG (Build, Innovate, Grow), which distils his vision for the country come 2019.

“I have painstakingly outlined my vision for Nigeria in my book, I am the first and dare say only presidential candidate to ever do this. It is not a policy document or just a few years plan, it’s a vision that even my successors can latch on and continue, with my book BIG, all Nigerians have a real blue print of what to expect from 2019” Moghalu said yesterday.

In a statement made available to our correspondent in Lagos, the presidential hopeful also explained why he chose 37-year-old Mrs. Umma Getso as his running mate.

“I chose her because I was told that choosing a lady as running mate would be a mistake. I was advised not to because women won’t win you elections on the ballot.

“But that is exactly my point. We have been running a nation where you are told not to go against the grain; which is why we haven’t made progress since the return to civilian governance in 1999. Women are nation builders. They are our mothers, sisters, aunts, friends, wives, confidantes, you name it. No one understands a nation better than its womenfolk. It has been a mistake not to have carried them along all these years,” he said.
