Khadija Okunnu-Lamidi says that despite her respect for the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, she still believes Nigerians really want a young person to rule Nigeria, a young person who would steer the country out of its current difficulties.

“Yes, we are somehow related,” Khadija Okunnu-Lamidi said.

“He’s the national leader of the APC; he has contributed to national politics and I have great respect for him. But that doesn’t change the fact that Nigerians are looking for a young person with vibrancy. Nigerians are looking for a way out of poverty; they want 24 hour electricity supply, good health care, and good roads, which are what I’m here to provide, “she said.

When she was asked if she had political experience, she said yes.

“Many people will say they have never heard of my name, but I’ve been in politics for at least 20 years. Many people do declare their political ambitions before they are actually ready, which is quite a problem. I’ve learnt the work and seen how others do it, which I don’t find satisfying; it gives me stomach ache. ”

When she was asked when she decided to run for president, Khadija Okunnu-Lamidi said,

“It was shortly after the EndSARS protests in October 2020,” adding that she started engaging with youths and the late singer, Sound Sultan, towards the goal of fielding some youths to contest for public office.

At that point, it occurred to me that if I truly have the passion, I should be the one to step out and take the risk for us to have a better Nigeria”, Khadija Okunnu-Lamidi

When she was asked about how serious she was about her ambition, she said,

“As you can see, my entrance into the race has not been a joke.”

When she was asked which political party she would run under, Mrs. Okunnu-Lamidi said,

“I don’t like to talk about parties because, for me, they don’t really bring solutions. I’ve never seen any party talking about how to make life better for everybody; it’s just about their own selfish interests.”
