FCT, Abuja – Princess Chichi Ojei, the presidential candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) has described her counterparts Peter Obi, Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar as “recycled politicians” responsible for the current situation in Nigeria.
Ojei, the only female candidate in next month’s presidential election, said the trio – Obi, Tinubu, Atiku – were responsible for holding Nigeria captive and derailing its ability to grow as a developing nation.
During a chat with legit.ng through his senior special assistant, Barr. Maurice Oru Ebam said:
“Tinubu, Atiku and Obi are recycled politicians who represent an outdated system, an old era of politicians who have held Nigerians captive in life sentences and the slavery of abysmal illiteracy, patronage, poverty, insecurity, hardship, false promises, corruption and impunity”.

He said his candidacy was driven to challenge the already existing norm that has crippled the economy.
The APM presidential candidate also insisted on the fact that her constituency (women) remains the most marginalized group in Nigeria and she is out to break that curse.
“Nigeria needs a visionary, determined, resourceful, versatile and independent president, free of patrons and cliques.
“Nigeria needs a fresh face with unblemished character, integrity and sincerity of purpose to serve its people and country.
“Most importantly, the solution to Nigeria’s problem is a female president by 2023. PRINCESS CHICHI OJEI (PCO) will provide and start the foundation for transformative leadership in Nigeria.”
APM Presidential Candidate Calls for Expansion of PVC Collection Exercise
When asked to provide feedback on the ongoing PVC collection exercise, he expressed disappointment, describing the entire process as “very disappointing and extremely porous.”
“I call on INEC to further extend the collection date. This is to ensure that all eligible voters collect their PVCs and vote for the candidates of their choice in this crucial election that will redefine the fate of the nation, as Power belongs to the people, not to a cabal.”
Ojei urged President Muhammadu Buhari to keep his promise and offer free and fair elections and let Nigerians make their choice.
Similarly, he urged the electoral body, INEC, to play its role as a neutral arbitrator and provide Nigerians with free and fair elections.
Ojei also tasked the commission with considering extending the deadline for federation-wide PVC collection before elections next month.
In his reform agenda for the country, he noted that his administration will prioritize adequate security, economic stability, an environment conducive to wealth creation, employment of women and youth, and electoral reforms.
