I will also urge the ruling party APC to take the great advantages by making a rightful choice of this young, vibrant, highly revered eminent political leader, a proficient political technocrat of huge contributions in our nation building.

And also know that the ” Youth Inclusion ” will be a marketing drive to ensure landslide victory for APC in the fast approaching 2023 General Elections.

El Dabi’s campaign slogans to the hearing of million of Nigerians has always been ” NIGERIA FIRST ” which is anchored on the principles of justice , fairness, equity , honesty detribalization and transformational leadership.

A professional accountant and management consultant from the North East Region of Borno State with impressive track records of public and private service whose words of hope and renaissance has been resounding with Nigerian Youths and other marginal segments including the working and professional classes from nooks and crannies of our country.

And he has progressive acumen that can turn Nigeria nation for good.

It is worthy to let you know that, before the All Progressives Congress Primaries, he was one of the youngest and front line aspirants for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of the ruling party.

I strongly believe and opine with the recorded aggregate sampled opinions of the Nigeria elites, political Leaders, the Youths across board, Market women, artisans, indigents and the voiceless, he is healthily fit , sumptuously experienced to be the Nigeria next Vice President.

Nigeria has come of time and age in her political development and in this regards I want to appeal to Nigerians to have a new mind set devoid of sentiments weaved around Religions and Ethnicity which have been the main bane of our discordance.

Some political activists and leaders who sometimes only looking upward to what drops down as benefits or their gains from deceit, end up confusing the electorate on this very hitching factors to have their ways in politics.

But going down the memory lane in 1983 Presidential Elections, the mutual political understanding, arraignments, tactical approach and mathematical calculations of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) on the Late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO) from the Southwest geopolitical zone, an astute Islamic figure and a Yoruba High Chief and Alhaji Babagana Kengibe a core northern reputable bigwig politician per excellence as running mate, paved way for the party unprecedented victory.

You will recall, SDP did not only win but the party won beyond any Nigerian imagination. And of course, the the narrations on religion Muslim/Muslim ticket and the Ethnocentric disposition changed. Then if I may ask, ” What brought about the success?” It was a politics of “No sentiments of Religion and Ethnicity.”

Nigerians should look out for good qualities of any given candidate and what are the resultant beneficial effects on our nation’s growth in all the spheres of our life.

Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda popularly known as ” El Dabi ” is no doubt a precinct of many academia, political thoughts and ideas that can give Nigerians a new narration of greater benefits.
He Will Bridge An Excellent Gab Between The Old And The Young.
And With His Great Sense Of Humility Will Be The Good Fit AS A Vice President To Our Amiable Leader, The APC Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu..Jagaban whose political prowess can not be over emphasised. History has vindicated him over and over again.

I cannot but reemphasize in my objective and sincere opinion that, the All Progressives Congress Leadership, Political Class and Nigerians, should consider a promising philanthropist Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda El Dabi a detribalized Nigerian who holds Nigerians in high esteem loves to offer a selfless , prudent , progressive and stable leadership devoid of negative , backward and parochial sentiment. A leader with truth , facts popular will and global best practice. A mission he prays to accomplish.

And his passionate Vision is geared towards creating a Nigeria we can all be proud of where Justice , Liberty and security for everyone is guaranteed regardless of their tribes, religion or class.
A Nigeria where opportunities are evenly and equitable distributed, hard work and labour are dignified where resources and talents are harnessed for the national good and interest, development and progress are conceived, designed to be sustainable and to make Nigeria an African giant and a global opportunity.

” He Who Is Not Courageous Enough To Take Risks Will Accomplish Nothing In Life. ”
– Winston Churchill.

With a deep sense of commitments to the repositioning of Nigeria for better life, breaking through the economic and political entanglement, building the unifying factors on truth and genuine purposes in order to
achieving the long awaited desired Unity, Progress and Peace in our noble nation, I am hopeful that the political class, our great front line leaders, elites, especially the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Leadership, His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, His Excellency Abubakar Adamu the Chairman of APC and His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Jagaban , the Presidential Candidate of APC by this public appeal will heed to this subtle clarion call to a sacred direction.

Millions of Nigerians from the Six geopolitical Zones of our nation are yearning for a youth governance, a new narration on Youth Inclusion, Empowerment, Development, an enabling environment to strive and an absolute turn around of a country worth living in of which Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda’s Vice Presidency stands to offer Nigerians.

Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda will be a great complement to H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. And without mincing words and at this crucial period, he is the right Candidate for the office of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
