A businessman and lawyer that aims to transform Nigeria with a new beginning.

Nwanyanwu Daniel Daberechukwu is a politician, entrepreneur, and a lawyer. He was born in Nigeria on November 23, 1959, in the community of Amuzu-Amaimo, which is located within the Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State. He went to St. James Primary School in Amuzu for his early education before proceeding to Oraifite Boys’ High School in Anambra State. He pursued his interest in labor management relations at Howard University’s School of Business in Washington, D.C. He was employed with Union Bank from 1979 to 1993 and held several positions within the National Union of Banks, Insurance, and Financial Institutions Employees (NUBIFIE). Later he attained the position of National Treasurer and, in 1989, the National President.

After receiving the latter appointment, he was inducted into the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) National Executive Council as a member automatically in 1992. He received the title of “Member of the National Institute” after attending the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, located in Kuru, Jos. He resigned from his position at the Union Bank of Nigeria to focus on his studies in February 1993. In 2000, he was called to the Nigerian Bar after completing his law degree at a Nigerian law school. He received his master’s degree in Law LLM from the University of Lagos and completed his tutoring in the Chief Rotimi Williams Chambers, where he worked closely with Frederick Rotimi Williams.

His wealth of experience has given him an edge in political space.

In 2004, he became National Chairman of the “Party for Social Democracy” (PSD), created by the Nigerian Labour Congress, which was later rebranded into the Labour Party to showcase its new values. In December 2009, at a Convention in Abuja, he was re-elected as the party’s National Chairman after developing and leading the new political party Under his direction. Later, at the 2014 convention, despite the absence of a constitutional barrier to his re-election as Party National Chairman, he chose not to run again, and he was officially appointed Party Board of Trustees Chairman by the Convention in session. In February 2015, he stepped down from his position as Labour Party Board of Trustees Chairman and ended his membership with the party.

With his pursuit of political ambitions, Mr. Dan Nwanyanwu emerged as the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) presidential candidate for the 2023 general election, with Abubakar Jibrin Ibrahim as his running mate. In his remarks during the party’s primary election held in Abuja, he pledged to adhere to the law if victorious. Speaking to 185 party delegates, He stressed the importance of party members having Permanent Voters Cards (PVC). He advised them to bring their voter registration cards when they came to meet him. It is only useful if they have sessions with PVCs. He said they would respect Nigerians’ core human rights and that nothing would be done by compulsion.

Power and responsibility sharing will improve the country’s status.

He believed Nigeria needed a new beginning and fresh insights to transform the nation. The country, he promised, will be independent of oil after just one year under his leadership. In his role as president, he will bring together all of Nigeria. Regardless of their ethnic background, he will work to earn everyone in Nigeria’s trust. He will allow them to fulfil their proper function by employing conventional institutions. In order to strengthen the nation, traditional authorities and religious leaders will be appointed to positions of responsibility. A united, happy Nigerian population is something they may expect to see again within the first three months. He said he would bring back companies that had gone by, providing an environment favorable to their return, and he also promised to create new jobs.

Following his civil rights advocacy, he was one of 492 delegates of the Labour Party to the 2014 National Conference, where he advocated for unification, good government, and strong mineral development. He advocated for government transparency and tougher punishments for corrupt government officials. He pushed for skilled and unskilled youth employment nationwide as a union leader and party member. In honour of the 500th commemoration of the Osemawa Dynasty and in acknowledgement of his many humanitarian efforts, HRM Oba Dr. Victor Adesimbo Kiladejo (Jilo 111), the Osemawe of Ondo kingdom bestowed upon him the honour of Otun Atunluse of Ondo Kingdom on July 17, 2010. On September 17, 2012, he was awarded the title of Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) by then-President Goodluck Jonathan.

The current administration should leave a fair election legacy – Daniel.

During the Channels TV show Politics Today, which covers politics and current events, the ZLP presidential candidate has said President Muhammadu Buhari should make sure that the 2023 elections are fair and honest as a legacy. He said further that since the president had failed in every aspect of his campaign, he ought to ensure the upcoming election be transparent. He, however, gave the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) a passing grade for how it was preparing for the election. Nevertheless, he warned that the opposing side would be bold in saying openly if the agency starts to go off track. He pointed out that the deployment of BIVAS technology has assisted in preventing the electoral fraud that had previously defined elections in Nigeria.

Because of the election gain that’s is why many people are coming out to want to contest for one post or the other but the issue is how many of these people have the good mind for the electorate which are the major people suffering from the ash economy.
