Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, presidential candidate of Peoples Trust (PT), says the 2019 elections is the best time to retire the political elite.

Olawepo-Hashim made the remark at a press briefing during the weekend.

He said the presidential election is not a “two horse race” between President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The presidential aspirant said his candidacy has put him in “prime position to challenge the duo”.

“While recycling of waste products might be good for the environment, it is bad for governance. The world has developed to appreciate the importance of recycling refuse and waste products, but cannot grow to the extent of accepting fading personalities as our potential rescuers,” he said.

“What we need now is a new generation of leaders. We no longer need the cabal anymore. We cannot accept a situation where we accommodate multiple pension-receiving individuals. I mean those who have been living on government expenses in ages. It is good to retire these people and the time to do that is now.

“It is time to retire them from politics and then drive Nigeria on the new part of creativity. My mission is to stop political recycling and we shall achieve this, by the Grace of God.

“The nation certainly needs fresh ideas on how to develop the economy, unite and secure the country, which the political elites recycling themselves in power have not been able to offer. 2019 must be the breaking point from the legacy of poverty and misery which politicians represent.”

Olawepo-Hashim won the party’s presidential ticket following a fusion of over 10 political parties, including the Olisa Agbakoba-led National Intervention Movement (NIM).
