Presidential hopeful and tech enthusiast, Adamu Garba has obtained the presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest forms of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).
Naija News reports that the controversial politician picked up his presidential form at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday.
Recall that Garba dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for YPP last week after failing to purchase the party’s presidential form.
Garba had said that the YPP is a perfect substitute for the ruling party, adding that the YPP is for the progressive young minds.
In a chat with newsmen in Abuja, Garba said he joined the YPP to correct the country’s foundation and create a new country.
The presidential hopeful said the future of young Nigerians lies with YPP and not with both the ruling APC or the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said: “The youth don’t have a future in the APC or PDP. I was a strong member of the PDP in 1999, in 2003 we moved to ANPP and in 2007 we came to PDP and stayed till 2014 when APC founded and we moved.
“I have even been a very loyal and committed member of the party (APC) and even aspired to contest for the presidency under the same APC in 2019.
“For me to come here and tell the whole world that the future of young people lies with YPP, I think there should be no credible person [like me] to say so because I have identified strongly with the party, fought for the party and get insulted for it but all the young people in the party are mushroomed, packed and dustbined maybe we are waiting for them to set fire on them but we will not be burnt.
“We are bringing a new deal. A vision that will go to the foundation and reset for the Nigerian state. The reason why we have been failing consistently in this country is because the foundation is faulty.
“The system was established at the point of division – that makes us see each other as different people whereas we share the same geography.”
