The number of those who want to take over Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari’s job come 2019 has just increased. But this time the aspirant is not your typical Nigeria’s candidate. The aspirant is Dr. Sam Nwanti who is an accredited USA based Private Investigator. Trained by FBI and KGB, Nwanti hails from Imo state and belongs to the exclusive club of 669 renowned world’s Private Investigators.
Detective Nwanti made his presidential ambition known at a Press Conference held at the Nigerian Union of Journalists Center in Owerri, Imo state. 0n February 14th.
The aspirant said that before he made the decision to throw his hat in the ring, he took time to study and investigate Nigeria’s problem. He said that in all his studies, one major problem that continued to reoccur to him was corruption. He said that being a private investigator of international repute, he is equipped to halt this societal ill which has eaten very deep into the fabric of Nigeria’s foundation and has been militating against its progress.
Nwanti said if corruption was uprooted from Nigeria, the country could harness its potentials and assume its rightful place in the comity of nations and rightfully claim its name as the giant of Africa which is currently used pejoratively to describe the country.
“I have investigated what the problems of this country are, and I found that it is mainly corruption. I believe I am the only aspirant who is well equipped, have the capacity and credential to solve the problem of corruption in Nigeria as soon as I get into office. Corruption is our main problem. The truth is that when a nation is able to address corruption, solution to other problems would be found. Other problems are tied to large scale corruption in the system that has made it impossible for Nigeria to progress. I assure you that I will bring my many years if experience as an investigator to solve this problem so as to enable the country to realize the dreams of our founding fathers.”
He also harped on the security situation of the country. His words:
“The security situation of the country also falls within my forte. By my training, I have the technical know how to fix the problem of crime as I am trained and well versed in this area.”
He said the if voters will give him the mandate, he would from the first day of his election begin a process of massive sanitization of the country from many years of corruption, by going after those corrupt politicians and to dislodge the ill-gotten wealth they have stolen from our country’s coffer for too long.
Detective Nwanti who is known in the USA crime fighting and detective circle as Detective Sam Wanting called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign now because he has failed the country in many ways.
Answering a reporter’s question on how he intends to compete with most of the money bag politicians who will want to fight to a finish to in order continue with the status quo of business as usual, Detective Nwanti said that the game changes from his first day in the office. He said one of the first among other steps he intends to apply against these corrupt politicians is to present them with the dossier of their ill-gotten wealth and ask them to explain to Nigerians how they acquired such unbelievable wealth. He said he knows where this stolen money and properties are.
On how he intends to make himself known to Nigerians being that he is still a dark horse in the Nigerian political terrain, he cited the case of Donald Trump whom he said was a neophyte but who went on to become the president of USA despite all the odds that was stacked up against him.
Dr. Nwanti said he intends to run under the platform of Labor Party because it is a party that makes sense and that it is a party of fellow workers that identifies with the sufferings, feelings and aspiration of the average Nigerian workers. He said he took time to study the programs and manifestos of all the other parties of Nigeria’s soup of alphabets. He disclosed that he has been at one time or the other a member of some of these parties and that one thing he learned quickly but regrettably was that most of the members of these parties are very corrupt and are the same politicians who will want continue to keep Nigeria into the same cesspool of corruption that it has been all along.
This is not the first outing of Detective Nwanti into Nigerian politics. He said that during the last election he wanted to run under the platform of Mega Progressive Party in 2015 but was talked out of the idea by some politicians “who promised him that they will represent the aspiration of many Nigerians but looking at the way things are today, it is very obvious that these politicians have failed to fulfill their campaign promises and brought no change to the fate of those who voted for them.”
Dr. Nwanti said that he chose today which is the Valentine’s Day to make is political aspiration known to the public because he loves Nigeria.
