Why Presidential Candidates’ Campaign Promises Will Fail – Pastor Chris Okotie
Chris Okotie, a former presidential candidate and the Lead Pastor of Household of God Church, has explained why presidential campaign promises made by those running for the presidency in the 2023 presidential election will fail.
Okotie said in a statement made available to The PUNCH on Monday that all presidential candidates were basing their campaigns on modalities rather than addressing the main issue, which he called the Nigerian constitution.
He stated categorically that modalities would not solve the country’s problems and that none of the candidates were addressing them.
He wrote, “All the major presidential flagbearers are talking about modality – how they would do what – none is addressing conditionality, that is, the constitution, true federalism, resource control, as the primary solution to the Nigerian quandary.
“Nigeria’s governmental incapacity is not modalities (about requisite knowledge and procedure), but conditionalities (inherent conditional obstructions).”
It further read, “To attempt to base any actualization of political promises on the present dysfunctional constitution is a journey in futility.”
The Reverend then declared that the only way out is to adopt his brand of restructuring based on Aboriginal Democracy, which would produce an acceptable constitution that would meet the yearnings of the people.
