Former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, has reiterated his plans to contest for the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023 whether it is zoned to the South-East or not, as he’s seeking to rule the entire country and not a particular region.

Anyim who has also served as the  former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) said he is prepared to take Nigeria to the first quarter of the 21st century adding that he is not out to represent a regional interest.

The Presidential aspirant said this while interacting with multi-media publishers in Abuja on Thursday, noting that  “I am not running because the party’s ticket will be zoned to my region, I have good knowledge of the country. I am not seeking to lead a region but the entire country,”

He said, “I am contesting because I have something to offer to Nigerians,” stressing that the offices he held in the past have groomed him for the task ahead, as he disclosed further that Nigerians will see the difference if he emerges president in 2023.

According to him “The two offices I served in the past are not the same. I’ve headed the parliament, but i have not head the executive.

“I brought stability to the Senate, I want to bring stability to the country. If you want to see what I did as SGF, you can look at the Goodluck Jonathan’s presidency. “I have not been president that is why I am vying for the office. I have a good knowledge on how to manage our diversity. I have acquired a lot of experience to run the affairs of the country,” the former Senate President said.

On his plans for the youths, Anyim said the world is not waiting for Nigeria adding that the youths must be groomed on the fourth generation jobs.

“Whether we like it or not the fourth generation jobs are here. Most jobs today will be history in the next few years. We are getting to the next quarter of the 21st century and between 2026 and 2050, most of today’s job will be history.

“Knowledge economy will drive the economic direction,” Anyim said of the 21st century industrial revolution the youths should be prepared for. “We will create startup corridors for Nigerian youths to develop themselves, create jobs and build up others. I will prepare Nigeria towards a definite direction which the world is heading to. We must move the country to the direction the world is going. The world is not waiting for Nigeria” Anyim said.


Speaking on his fight against corruption, Anyim said he will ensure institutions are strengthened. The institution should be allow to do there work. For the institutions, we will put in place measures that will not allow corruption. By the time we deployed technology, where private sector drive every segment of our Economic and national life, there is no way people will engage in corruption. People will have no option than to do their work without thinking about corruption.


“I was part of the people that make laws for the establishment of ICPC and EFCC. We will look at them and see how far they have gone. We will use a mothern system that won’t allow a window for corruption,” Anyim added
