A frontline presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Tein Jack-Rich has said his aspiration to become Nigeria’s President is solely to make life better for the average man.
The oil magnate, who spoke in Jalingo, Taraba State Capital, when he met delegates ahead of APC presidential primary election, said 2023 is the time to choose a leader whose priority is to make living worthwhile for Nigerians.
According to him, “A vote for Jack-Rich, having come from a humble background, is a vote to emancipate our struggling mothers, fathers and relatives.
“The man speaking to you today came from a humble background.
“I am the son of a woman who sells Garri in the village and died because she couldn’t afford to pay her medical bills.
“But that same woman has given birth to children who now serve as motivation to other families who are going through what my mother went through.
“We can’t afford to neglect and fail the families struggling and that is why I have come to liberate those yearning for a better life.”
He told the delegates that he had plans of establishing an industrial centre in the North East region, which he said Taraba would benefit from immensely.
He, however, urged the delegates to vote for his candidature during the APC presidential primaries, promising them easy access and compensation even after the exercise.
Taraba State Chairman of the APC, Ibrahim El-Sudi, who also spoke, thanked the presidential aspirant for his love for Nigeria.
He urged the delegates to vote for competence and not money bags.
