Owerri – Ahead of the nation’s 2019 general election, Sam Wanti, an American trained detective formally attached to the Federal Bureau of Investigations FBI/K9B, has declared his interest to succeed Presidential Muhammadu Buhari next year.
Wanti who hails from Mbieri, in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State said that as one of the officially recognised 364 criminalists in the world, he has the capacity to tackle corruption that has traditionally held the nation by the jugular.
Boasting of an intimidating profile that stands him shoulder high above all other presidential aspirants in the country, Wanti who is running under the platform of the Labour Party (LP) made his presidential aspiration known while interacting with newsmen in Owerri.
“I have investigated what the problems of this country are and I believe that I am the only person that can solve the problems besieging the citizenry. I am not corrupt and I have the capacity to reduce corruption if elected president next year,” he stated.
Insisting that corruption is the bane of the nation, Wanti who claimed to have previously been drafted into the presidential race by the departed political icon, Chief Anthony Enahoro, under the National Reformation Party (NRP) in 2010 said that the US President, Donald Trump, was aware of his current presidential dream and solidly behind him.
“Corruption is our main problem and the truth is that when the nation is able to address corruption, the solution to other problems would be found because other problems are tied to the large scale corruption in the system. I assure that I will bring my experience and ideas to bear in solving it and if corruption is addressed, Nigeria will realize the dream of her founding fathers.
The security situation of course falls within my forte by my professional training. I am contesting because I know I have the technical know how to fix the problem of corruption and crime in the country as I am well equipped by these areas,” he said.
The Presidential contender vowed never to step down in favour of any other presidential aspirant for whatever reason.
