*2023 & Successorship: Project Hope Nigeria*
– A message from Dr Philip Idaewor.
It is with a deep sense of gratitude, that I bring you this message, firstly to thank you for committing to support this movement. We launched Hope2023 with a very clear vision founded on years of active listening, learning and interrogation of Nigeria’s political leadership space. We dream of a new Nigeria, one which sees all Nigerians as Africans and equal members of one common humanity, as Citizens respected and valued by their political leaders, and who are proud representatives of the African race.
We started this campaign with a clear intention to contest for the Presidency of our country on the platform of the political party that I have been a member of since formation, that is, the All Progressives Congress (APC). However the present monetised nature of Nigeria’s political space made it impossible for us to purchase the nomination. I hope to be able to share further thoughts on this issue and our experience in future.
The primary reason for my broadcast on this occasion is to thank all supporters of the Hope2023 movement and to request your continued support as we re-energise our campaign and refocus for the future.
The fate of too many depends on the success of Nigeria’s political redemption campaign. And that is because the present model is simply a recipe for anarchy. Yet millions of people of colour around the world yearn for a peaceful, progressive, knowledge-led Nigeria that works for the many and not the few. Because the day Nigeria awakens to her status, that day will be “Day break Africa”.
Project Hope Nigeria is depending on you to take the message of Hope of a new Nigeria to the people, to raise a new generation of Nigeria’s political thinkers and activists who are intentional in their determination to end monetised politics in Nigeria, who are focused on seeking out and propelling our best into political leadership and who are committed to knowledge-led political leadership in Nigeria.
God bless you and God bless Nigeria. Thank you.
Dr Philip Idaewor.
