A prince and businessman that believes Nigeria need good governance.

Abdul-Malik Ado-Ibrahim is a renowned civil rights activist and businessman born on December 22, 1963, into the Atta Royal Family of Ebira Land, located in Kogi state, Nigeria. The young prince was so eager to learn that he frequently accompanied his father on business trips worldwide. He has distinguished himself in the business world, particularly in the field of renewable energy and technology. He had his early schooling in the United Kingdom and later attended the American College in the United States to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics.

He was a brilliant student, excelling in both academics and athletics. His passion for sporting activities propelled him to become the first black man to buy a Formula 1 team, Arrows F1, in addition to being an exceptional polo player. He held an Under-Secretary position at IREO, a UN organization for renewable and sustainable energy, from 2007 to 2011. This kindled his enthusiasm for the industry. To further his humanitarian goals of activism and improved living conditions for Nigerians, he founded the Reset Nigeria Initiative, an advocacy group with the stated goal of changing the current political landscape of Nigeria. Through sectoral information for citizen empowerment, he intends to re-orient the public toward accountability in governance.

The party ideology prompted his interest in the party.

On October 28, 2021, motivated by his passion for the country and his interest in politics, he joined the Young Progressives Party (YPP). The party’s presidential primary was held in Abuja, and he won with 66 votes against His contender, Ruby Isaac-Chinenye making him the party’s candidate for president in 2023 with his running mate Enyinna Michael Kasarachi. In his acceptance speech, he pledged that if elected to government in 2023, he would deal with the nation’s security issues, generate jobs, and revitalize the economy. He vouched for their youthful intellect by pointing out that Northerners are making remarkable strides in agricultural innovations. He affirmed that they would demonstrate how to modernize and advance the country through the application of technology.

Speaking further, he explained he joined the YPP because its ideology was consistent with his own, and he realized political organizations should be illustrative of an ideology rather than merely a platform for candidates to run on. Since 1999, Nigeria has been mismanaged by the so-called larger parties. By comparing the country’s past and present conditions. This is why he has no intention of disposing of his humanity. He added that he could not simply join a political party because it has a bigger base of support. No one can predict the future, they can only learn from past experiences.

Ado-Ibrahim reaffirmed his commitment to addressing the country’s challenges.

Moreover, the YPP presidential nominee has comprehensive plans to address Nigeria’s ongoing problems. He believes Nigeria requires the services of a visionary, a builder, a philosopher, and a global citizen. In an interview, he emphasized that Nigeria requires a Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, someone with experience in building, establishing, developing, and growing the country like a multinational company, instead of a politician who is simply there to serve his party and his own self-interests.

He noted that the term “security” encompasses more than just the presence of military and war weapons. The nation must also consider the concept of security in a global and comprehensive context, including economic security, national security, food security, border security, digital security, and cyber security, among others. And as the Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria, his role would require him to ensure the safety of the people, assets, and sovereignty of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in every way that is feasible.

Good governance should be prioritized in the country.

During a media session in Abuja, when he spoke about the country’s state, Prince Malik encouraged the federal government to be decisive and tackle governance, particularly in light of the security threat that has gripped certain areas of the nation. According to him, one of the primary reasons that good governance is not in display in Nigerians and, as a result, contributing to terrorism and other difficulties in the country is that the current administration does not place emphasis on making it a priority.

It was not possible for him to join a political party just because that party has a larger support base. No one can correctly forecast the future; all that can be done is draw wisdom from previous events.
