Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has declared his intention to run for the seat of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Speaking during a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, Oshiomhole said he will appropriately tax the rich to provide amenities for the poor.
“It is in the interest of the rich to pay that tax so they can enjoy their wealth,” he said saying that he will purchase the All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination and expression of interest forms in the next few hours.
“If we can subsidise petroleum products to the tune of trillions then we can subsidise education, agriculture etc.”
Oshiomhole, who is also a former APC National Chairman, said if elected as President, he will insist that textile and automobile companies who want the continued patronage of Nigerians must relocate their factories to Nigeria to give jobs to the teeming youths of the country.
