“My honest desire to govern our dear state is to harness its numerous resources to enhance human capital development as our people are yearning for a leader that can focus on human capital development and security.

“It is now evident that our party, the APC stands a better chance of taking over power in the state in the coming election.

“I want to assure you that those things that had happened in the past will not happen again.

“We are growing from strength to strength as more people are decamping into our party day by day.

“We need people because it’s the people you have in a political party that give the party the strength to be able to excel.

“For me, I am in the race to continue with those projects I started that have positive impact on the people. I learnt that most, if not all the project’s I started have being abandoned.

“I am advising our members to support whoever candidate that would emerge as candidate for the party. I am ready to support whoever that will emerge because we are all members of the party and in whatever we do, the interest of our party first,” he said.
