In an open declaration on his official social media accounts on Wednesday, one of Nigeria’s renowned comedians, Oluwaseyitan Lawrence Aletile, popularly known by his stage name as Seyi Law, has declared that he will run for the post of the president in the upcoming 2019 Presidential Election.
"Why aim LOW when you can aim HIGH? I believe that the status quo must change for Nigeria to regain its place as a force to reckon with. The energy and knowledge of the Nigerian Youth must be put to positive use.
"It is time we acknowledged the ingenuity of our vibrant men and women to ensure proper representation at the different levels of governance and not mere reduction to PAs and SAs.
"We must ensure we retain our best brains in the country and adequately make provision to reform our educational institutions, healthcare system and industries. Our ways of learning must change to meet required standard.
"I am ALETILE OLUWASEYITAN LAWRENCE aka SEYILAW and I am running for the highest office in the land in 2019.
