I’ll Recreate My Performance In The Senate, Says Anyim


The presidential ambition of Anyim Pius Anyim, a leading aspirant on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has continued to enjoy popular appeal.

On January 25, in his office, a group of over 100 online media organisations, under the umbrella of the Multi-Media Publishers Association of Nigeria, MPAN, came to pledge loyalty and to form a partnership with Anyim.

Led by its national chairman, Alhaji Gambo Jajindi, the group said they wanted to partner with Anyim because of his national appeals in addition to the inclusive roles he had played in his previous assignments.

Fielding questions from the group, Anyim assured his guests that he will not change from what people already knew about him. Insisting instead, he would rather remain on the path which has earned him the favour, respect and recognition of people.

Stating further Anyim said, “If there’s any role I had played in the past to the admiration of people, including bringing stability to the National Assembly as president of the Senate, I will repeat it in the presidency.”  Stating further, he assured, “if there are any roles still I had played as secretary to the government of the Federation SGF, in making Goodluck Jonathan administration a reference point, with applause today, to the extent that Jonathan is rumoured as being wooed to come and serve again, I will like to repeat same and even more if given the chance to be the president of Nigeria”. Anyim told his audience that he witnessed the challenges of leadership under President Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime as head of the legislature.

He equally watched the challenges of leadership under president Umoru Yar’Adua regime as a major stakeholder and actively participated in shaping the regime of president Jonathan as an administrative head, therefore he stated, “I stand to say that I have witnessed the challenges and I am better prepared now by experience and exposure, more than any other time, to proffer solutions to the nation’s leadership challenges”.

Anyim said that he would prepare Nigerians, particularly the youths not to look for jobs but to create jobs by themselves by aligning them to the dictates of the fourth industrial revolution.

According to him, “the whole concept of the policy I will run as a president of Nigeria will be youth compliance because the future belongs to them.” Explaining further he said, “We shall commit to start-up corridors and we shall provide take-off funds to drive the process of private entrepreneurship.”

This process he believes is what will open up the economy and create opportunities for the teeming population. Anyim further explained that the structures and platforms that will be put in place under his regime will not give room for anyone to get corrupt, saying that People get corrupt because there’s much room for corruption.

He further explained that the anti-corruption agencies, EFCC and ICPC which were created under his watch as President of the Senate would be strengthened to perform optimally if the operations of the agencies need fine-tuning.

According to him, corruption thrives when there is room for its existence but when adequate framework is put in place and institutions are enabled to function maximally, he said, there will be no room for corruption to flourish.
