The Presidential Candidate of Young Peoples Party, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has advised the government to respect agreements reached with the Nigerian Labour Congress on the N30,000 minimum wage.
The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria said the N30,000 minimum wage is doable and there should be no form of excuse from any state government.
He likened the All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party to twins in corruption.
“In APC corruption is concentrated among the cabal while in PDP corruption is democratised. My presidency will restore Nigeria to path of greatness,” he said.
Speaking with journalists on his mission to restore the country to the path of glory, Moghalu said his government would give education priority because no nation could rise beyond the level of its education.
He assured to resolve the crisis with the Academic Staff Union of Universities if elected president by committing necessary funds to the sector.
He said, “The office of the presidency is for a person that has the mental capacity for policy formulation and execution. Joblessness, insecurity and ASUU strike will end with YPP.
“My government will invest in education and honour agreement with the union. No society can rise above the level of education of its citizens.”
He said he would remove fuel subsidy and other subsidies on consumption but would subsidise production to get money to run government.
‘We will expand the base of taxation, privatise the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation partly and remove fuel subsidy,” he said.
Moghalu boasted that he had the strategy to win the election adding that his emergence would shake the world like the result of the United States Presidential election of 2016.
He said, “We have the plan and strategy to win the election, I will be sworn in as the president. Many people will be shocked just the way people were shocked in the United States election of 2016 when people went to bed thinking Hillary Clinton would be declared winner only to wake up and heard Donald Trump declared winner.
