Sam Ohuabunwa Declares Presidential Ambition

The founder and former CEO of Neimeth Pharmaceutical, Sam Ohuabunwa, has declared his intentions to run for the 2023 presidential office in Nigeria.

The President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria met with the PDP National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja Thursday.

Ohuabunwa informed the Peoples Democratic Party of contesting its ticket in the 2023 presidential election.

The pharmacist said he is poised to deliver quality leadership to Nigerians and run the nation’s affairs like a business while warning against seeing the country’s security challenges as sectional problems.

The 71-year-old noted that creating distinctions between Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho, or the killings and kidnapping in other parts of the country will not resolve the security issues until they are approached holistically.

Ohuabunwa also advised Nigerians not to consider age when electing leaders, but health in the body, soul and spirit, and the ability to lead right and galvanise the people.

Ohuabunwa, in his statement, said, “There are many young people chronologically, but yet they behave and act like old people because of their vision, because of their worldview.

“A young worldview is an exploratory worldview, a worldview that can entertain and accept a larger picture of the globe, be able to learn from each other, a mindset that is willing to try new things, to get into new opportunities.

“Secondly, to be able to discharge the function of office as a president or governor, you need to have a healthy body. You need to have a healthy soul. You need to have a healthy spirit; body, mind and soul must be together to function in this office.

“This office of president is serious. You must have experience in managing many things at the same time. It’s not to take six months to form your cabinet; take six months to plan how you’re going to work. I have the experience. I’ve been trained.

“That is why good companies succeed because they do not tolerate stories. For me, that’s the experience you need to run a country, not necessarily chronological age. I am young in my heart, in my spirit, in my physique and my ability to do the job,” he said.
