Enenche urged Nigerians in an open letter on Monday to look for a leader with integrity, competence, sound national economic knowledge, local and international goodwill, zero corruption/criminal records (convicted or not), and good health to withstand the demands of the President’s office.
The conditions for the office of President, he believes, should also apply to other elective positions at the national and state levels.
“My love for Nigeria is anchored on the fact that the country invested so much in my professional career development and life,” Eneche said.
“Implementation; this should be in the form of mass concurrence on the choice of the kind of President Nigerians need.
“In this regard, factors to consider should be integrity, competence, sound national economic knowledge, local and international goodwill, zero corruption/criminal records (convicted or not), and good health to withstand the demands of the office of the President.
“The conditions for the office of the President should equally apply to other elective positions at national and state levels. This comes by way of a Specified Campaign cutting across ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds, which is the Strategic Best Practice for the present situation of Nigeria and should therefore be adopted.
“Thereafter, it would be reviewed and strengthened for sustainability.”
