A retired Army Colonel and member of the Peoples Redemption Party, Gboluga Mosugu, has submitted his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms making him eligible to run for the office of the President under the platform of the party.

Mosugu who spoke to pressmen while submitting his forms at the PRP’s National Secretariat through the party’s National Secretary, Babatunde Alli, in Abuja on Wednesday, said he took the idea to lead the country very seriously.

He said, “The idea to lead Nigeria right is one that I take seriously. I am aware of the challenges ahead, but challenges are meant to be faced and conquered, and I’m in it for the long run. I am a retired Colonel, and as a soldier, one is always prepared to die for their country if the need arises in the course of duty. I could die for Nigeria.

“After I got the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms, I could have changed my mind that I didn’t want to go further, but I am prepared for the challenge ahead, and there is no fear in my mind.

Mosugu described the PRP as the most competent political party in the country while calling on Nigerians to give their mandate to the party in the upcoming 2023 general election.

He also stated that his competitors within the PRP were the best presidential aspirants that could be found anywhere in the country.

He said, “The PRP is the most competent party in Nigeria, and my opponents within the party that I’d be running against during our party’s presidential primaries are all worthy – they are the best presidential aspirants that could be found anywhere in the country. Although I will do everything I can to be the party’s presidential flag-bearer, however, if I lose at the primary, I’d be the first to congratulate the winner.”
