A Nigerian-born woman, Helen Mukoro, is a presidential candidate in Spain.
Helen Mukoro is a Nigerian-born presidential aspirant in the forthcoming elections in Spain. She recently spoke to newsmen about her ambition.
Mukoro claimed that she wants Spain to greater heights and better the country’s economy.
There are so very many reasons for my presidential ambition. I intend to lead the Spanish economy to the right direction, reset its priorities and create a sensible framework, which will guarantee stability and economic growth. In order to achieve this, I will lead Spain to begin to think ahead about economic and financial issues. We will work in specialised teams to solve specific problems and change paradigms.
About her chances of winning the presidential election, Helen Mukoro said that she is very optimistic.
I am optimistic. For months, I have been meeting with social movements and we have all agreed on the need to address unemployment, poverty and neo-liberal policies in Spain. My political ideology is to address inequality. One of our basic objectives is to promote social and economic policies that will eradicate poverty in all its facets.
Helen Mukoro, who claimed that she migrated to Spain in 1992, now 23 years old, decried the low political participation of women in Nigeria.
Mukoro, the first African to contest for the exalted seat of the president of Spain, said that she has the full support of Spaniards.
