“Therefore, it is expedient to try another model oin line with the current mood of the country. And this should be in the form of mass concurrence on the kind of president Nigerians need,” he said.

Enenche, disclosed that it will be an act of ‘un-patriotism’ if after several years of privilege studies on leadership and strategies if he keeps quiet without commenting on political activities going on towards the election of leaders in 2023.

His words: “In this regard, factors to consider should be integrity, competence, sound economic knowledge, zero corruption records and above all, good health to cope with the pressure of the office of the president.

“These convictions should also apply to other elective positions at national and state levels. They should also, be devoid of ethnic and religious connotations. Let’s vote in credible leaders and Nigeria will work”.
