African Democratic Congress presidential candidate, ADC Dumebi Kachikwu, has asked Nigerians to reject front-line presidential candidates – Peter Obi of the Labor Party; Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC; Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and try someone else.
The ADC candidate asked Nigerians to try out a new presidential candidate by voting for him in the February 25 election.

Kachikwu made the accusation during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.
According to him, the popular opponents have all held office in the country and have nothing new to offer.
Kachikwu said, “If you take the trio of Asiwaju, Atiku and Peter Obi, they all have in common that they all held office in Nigeria, which is seen as a failed nation.
“Nigerians should venture out and try something new. What we’ve been through for the past eight years can never be this bad. If we go with these people, we will continue on this trajectory.”
The ADC’s presidential standard-bearer also kicked the approval of some of his opponents.
He questioned the parameter used in approving candidates when there has been no serious debate about the issues facing the country.
Kachikwu said, “People make recommendations based on nothing. Having the opportunity to vigorously discuss our issues as Nigerians will make Nigeria better. This is what we have always seen, Nigeria, a country of almost 200 million people, has not had the chance to do this.
“So we are running in this election and no one has come to say that we have debated the housing problem in Nigeria, the lack of infrastructure. What do we do about tourism? What are we doing about healthcare, education and our economy? Nothing, no one has had the opportunity to discuss these in detail and we are going into the elections.
“So, if people elect a president on February 25, what are they electing a president for if they haven’t heard anyone speak critically on all issues?” he said.
