Giving his acceptance speech, Moghalu said Nigeria needs a President who has a holistic worldview to various happenings globally.
Making reference to how China initially struggled and finally became one of the world’s superpower, Moghalu said the country has several opportunities to fulfil its potential, but noted that the lackadaisical attitude may halt the realisation of such dream.
He said, “More than ever before, Nigeria needs to be driven by a vision, informed by a worldview that determines everything else.
“Up till about 40 years ago, China was viewed as a basket case; overpopulated, unproductive and ruined economically by policies of the decades prior to that.
“Today, they snap their fingers and nearly every single African Head of state shows up in China with their hands out, eager for Chinese largesse. That’s what a country driven by a worldview can achieve.
“In accepting the presidential ticket of this great party, I stand here before you to say that Nigeria is fully capable of achieving greatness at home and abroad in our lifetimes.
“But this cannot happen with the normal way of doing things, the so-called Nigerian way.”
Moghalu also said the 2019 elections was a choice between living in a genuinely democratic society or being walloped by corrupt politicians into continuous poverty.
“It is a choice between remaining a mere fractious assortment of ethnicities and religious on one hand and building a real nation on the other.
“It is a choice between freedom and slavery under our recycled and corrupt politicians; between poverty and prosperity for our masses of the poor, and the unemployed, and between stability and continuing instability of the Nigeria state”, he said.
The presidential aspirant explained that he joined the YPP because he believed the party would live up to its name of being progressive for young persons.
