John Olumba To Run For Detroit Mayor Post

John Olumba is a 31-year old Nigerian running for mayor of the city of Detroit in Michigan. He is a lawyer, an ordained pastor and he is currently a State of Michigan House Representative.

According to wikipedia, he is the first Nigerian elected to a state office in Michigan history. His dad is from Owerri in Imo State.

 In an interview with the Michigan Citizen, Olumba said he wants to lead the troubled city into an “age of revival.”

“I’m encouraged because we’ve always shown our ability to bounce back,” he said.

But he questions the record of some of the candidates.

“Are we going to go with someone who’s been a part of the political establishment? Across the United States, part of the slogan was ‘forward.’ It’s time for people to stop looking backward,” he said.

The newcomer to the mayoral race says he’s not worried about the other candidates and says he represents innovation. His plan for the city, he says, is trilateral: a war on poverty, corruption and crime. According to him, all go hand in hand
