Recall that the party made considerations for female aspirants, youths and persons with a 50 percent slash of the cost for all the elective office.


Ohanenye said like the male presidential aspirants, she had what it would take to lead the country to the next phase of development but stated that she would withdraw from the race for any aspirant with the vision and desire to address the growing poverty and insecurity in the country.


The aspirant stressed, that as a mother, she had the magic wand to do things better.


“It is so obvious and all of us know that it is time for a mother to come on board.


“As it is today, considering the state of insecurity in the country and other things, children need motherly care; we can understand that from their attitude.


“I have never been a politician, but because of what I have seen, I just felt I should come on board.


“The major solution I am bringing on board is to involve the commoners and the less privileged in the governance of the country,” she said.


Ohanenye said there was the need to involve the common man in the governance of the country and to create job opportunities for the teaming unemployed youths.


She said Nigerian youths were very intelligent and should not be allowed to be engaged in anti-social activities.


“I am going to localize the construction of roads and many other things.


“I won’t copy the Westerners all through because they have their ways of constructing roads which makes the construction very expensive,’’ she said.


She explained that locals would be engaged in road construction to get them involved and to enable them to earn incomes to reduce unemployment and keep the people busy and out of mischief.


Ohanenye explained that she was not interested in contesting for the governorship seat in her state because she doesn’t want to be limited to a particular region or place.


“I want to be out for all Nigerians be you Christian, Muslim, male, female; I don’t care. I just want to be there to ensure that everybody feels good.


“Lack of love, selfishness and bias are the causes of insecurity; people no longer feel any sense of belonging or reason to live,’’ she observed.


She said she would support the speculated consensus option to pick APC’s presidential candidate on the condition that the major reason for her joining the race was addressed.


“Those issues concerning the downtrodden must be addressed.


“I don’t really care if any other person other than I takes up the responsibility, but the person must be one who will look into solving the problems of Nigeria,” she said.


She joins an already long list of APC presidential aspirants which includes;  Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu; Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi; Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige and Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba.


Others include Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi; Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti; Pastor Tunde Bakare and former Ogun governor, Ibikunle Amosun.


The APC special presidential primary convention is scheduled to hold from Monday, May 30 to Wednesday, June 1.
