Electoral Vision

According to a report by Vanguard, Ms Johnson is strongly pro-women and believes that her decision to run for president is "God-ordained".

When declaring for the Presidency, Ms Johnson expressed concern that Nigeria had not enjoyed sustainable development since the return of democratic governance in 1999.

“Our men, who were elected into leadership positions in the country, have failed us," Ms Johnson said. “Although they were elected to serve they end up being served by the people that elected them.”

She also says that men have failed Nigeria and it is time for a woman to take the lead not as a vice but as president herself.
