LAGOS JUNE 10TH (URHOBOTODAY)-A successful Bayelsa State business man, Moses Siasia has declared his intention to contest for the position of Governor of Bayelsa State when the contest for the political leadership of the state begins.
Making his intention public in a press statement made available to URHOBOTODAY an online medium through the African Press Organisation (APO), Siasia who will be thirty five years old by June 17th, 2015, said after consulting with his family and friends, and based upon the tremendous outcry from his home state for help, he had decided to run for the office of Governor of Bayelsa, adding that for far too long his people have suffered from political oppression despite being one of the wealthiest states in Nigeria, with an abundance of natural resources.
According to him, “Bayelsa has one of the highest unemployment rates in Nigeria. Our children do not have modern schools or tools to educate them. Our students abroad are stranded without resources to complete their education. Our infrastructure has been neglected resulting in dangerous impassable roads, lack of potable water and basic human hygiene.
“Our older citizens have been abandoned and left to die in poverty and poor health. Our young, internationally educated young men and women have been denied the opportunity to run for office, and told that “the office of the Governor is not for boys”. Young citizens of Bayelsa who today seek change are being threatened and intimidated for speaking up against the current regime. Fear mongering and intimidation has no place in Bayelsa and the time has come to end this madness and take back our state from lying, thieving, self-serving politicians.”
Siasia who is yet to disclose the party he would be flying its flag explained that since Bayelsa became a state in 1999, there had not been any private economic growth, the people rely solely on the allocation of Government funds to survive, but the money never trickles down to them due to wastefulness and mismanagement of funds because of lack of leadership and self-serving agendas.
“Our people have been cheated, lied to, misled, neglected, and held in political bondage for far too long and it is time to set my people free. My name is Moses, and I will lead my people to the Promised Land,” Siasia declared adding that he is running for Governor because it is time to take back Bayelsa state and usher in a new era of leadership and prosperity for the people of Bayelsa.
“Today, the youth of Bayelsa is crying for real measurable change. The future of Bayelsa is in dire straits. The youths, the custodians of our future are here to take back their state. In July 2015, I will formally declare my campaign in Bayelsa, and on election Day, will make history as the youngest elected person to the office of Governor in the history of Nigeria,: he vowed.
He promised that as a successful businessman he would govern Bayelsa state with a firm grip on accountability and charge all those who will work with him with great responsibility and high integrity.
Hear him, “I will bring in much needed international investments and create sustainable and meaningful private sector jobs. It is time for all foreign contractor who come here year in and year out to reinvest in our state. No longer will we allow the world, and our current leadership to take advantage of us. I aim to give hope to the hopes and give voice to the voiceless. The time for real measureable change is now.”
