A Nigerian UK born citizen, Kemi Badenoch. Who has served as Member of Parliament for Saffron Walden since 2017 and she is contesting for the position of United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, under the Conservative Party.
Kemi Badenoch, in her pursuit to be UK’s next prime minister of the United Kingdom, has slammed Nigerian politicians as looters and dream killers.
“I grew up in Nigeria, and I saw first hand what happens when politicians are in it for themselves, when they use public money as their private piggy bank, when they promise the earth and pollute not just the air, but the whole political atmosphere with their failure to serve others. I saw what socialism means for millions: poverty and broken dreams,”
said Ms Badenoch in a speech announcing her ambition to become UK’s prime minister on the Conservative Party on Tuesday.
Ms Badenoch and 10 other politicians from the Conservative Party had declared their interest in becoming the next prime minister of the United Kingdom by September 5.
“Now I recognise that this is an ambitious agenda. And running to be Prime Minister when you’re a 42-year-old is by definition ambitious, but I am ambitious: for our country and for our party. I chose to become a Conservative MP to serve, and I chose this country because I can be who I am and I could be everything that I wanted to be,”
Ms Badenoch noted.
