- Nigerian journalist Kemi Olunloyo has joined the race for the presidential election
- She revealed this on her Twitter account where she solicited for support in the coming primaries
- According to her, the declaration will make her the first woman in the line up of 'recycled leaders'
Popular Nigerian journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, has officially come out to declare for presidency in the 2019 elections.
She took to her Twitter account to make the announcement. According to the controversial journalist, this will make her the first woman among the others who she referred to as 'recycled leaders'.
In her words: "#BREAKING #hnnpolitics I'm joining the race to be President of #Nigeria under the platform @OfficialPDPNig. That makes me the 1ST WOMAN ♀ in the line up of male ♂ RECYCLED LEADERS. I can beat @mbuhari for real So pls support my primaries WIN! #NigeriaDecides2019"
Although Kemi Olunloyo declared herself the first woman in the race, she is actually the second woman in the race. A 39-year-old lady mother of five, Eunice Uche Atuejide, has shown interest in contesting for the post of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the 2019 election.
It is rather refreshing to see more woman attempt to take on roles that have dominated by the male folks.
Kemi Olunloyo might be considered controversial but she sure does have an interesting following on social media and thus it will come as no surprise when people come out to campaign for her.
