The Presidential aspirant for the National Conscience Party, (NCP) Dr. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese has on Thursday said that his administration will stop the recycling of leaders if elected president in the forthcoming 2019 general election.

Not as he equally said that corrupt public officials, who are found guilty of embezzling public funds will face Life imprisonment.

Speaking at Amai Kingdom during his visit to the Igwete of Amai Kingdom, Ikubese assured that his administration will be based on transparency and accountability, noting that as a medical practitioner, he is coming as a political revolutionist seeking to implement the recommendations in his book for the betterment of Nigerians.

Reeling out some of his manifestoes, Ikubese said, “”Your Royal Majesty, some persons somewhere have been benefiting from us being in darkness. We must discourage Stomach Politics in 2019. Nigerians must come together in unity to bring changes to Nigeria.

“We must support each other in any way we can. We must bring in new person to the system. Your Majesty, some weeks ago, the Senate raised alarm that since the EFCC was inaugurated, their account has not been audited.

“Also, just few days ago, the Mace was stolen by some hoodlums and no one has been arrested, what more can be called corruption.

“My government will operate on transparency and accountability. Every month, we will publish our income and expenditure.

“Within six months of my administration, we will have uninterrupted power supply across Nigeria. I thank you all for your love and warm welcome. Am happy to be at my Palace. By 2019, I will be your President.

“YES WE FIT” is a revolutionary movement, and all Nigerians must join hands together in unity to create a dream nation and make Nigeria great”, he finally said.

In his remarks, the Onu-Osa of Amai Kingdom, High Chief B.A Alonu JP expressed joy, noting that it is the first time an Amai man will be contesting in the Presidential Election and enjoined his people to support Ikubese.

The spokesman of the Presidential Aspirant, Chief Dr. Maxwell Ogwu intimated the Palace that Dr. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese is amongst the few individuals who are worried on how the leadership of Nigeria is heading which prompted his decision to come into the system and redeem Nigeria.

Speaking further, he said that Dr. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese before now has been reaching out to Nigerians via different Media Platforms and Town Hall meetings with his book titled My Prescription for Nigeria, which now forms the basis of his presidential aspiration.
