The National Chairman of the National Conscience Party (NCP), Yunusa Tanko, has joined the race to Aso Rock.

Tanko declared his intention to run for the post in Lagos, promising to tackle poverty if elected.

According to him, “Nigerians, especially the youths have the key to turn things around in the country and therefore, should use their voting power to vote out bad, non-performing and incapable leaders out of the system.”

In his 10-point agenda, he listed employment, food, health, housing, education, water, electricity, transportation and telecommunication as priorities.

He said he “will not only add value to our egalitarianism but also emphasise the missing human capital development that have long eroded us as a people.”  

He also urged all those who are interested in running for 2019 presidency on the platform of NCP to declare their intention, noting that the party would provide a level playground for all aspirants.
