He promised that if he was elected president in 2023, he would positively change the narrative.
According to him, Nigeria’s problem is not a lack of ideas, but institutional weakness and a lack of political will to bring about real change that will improve the lives of citizens.
He said he is committed to unleashing the greatness of the country and elevating it from a consuming country to a producing one.
He also promised to ensure that the security challenges facing the country are directly addressed, adding that job opportunities will be created for young people who are tools used to perpetrate social vices.
According to him, once jobs are created and young people are engaged and made productive, insecurity will be minimized and it will no longer be a profitable business.
He said that the security services will be adequately equipped to deal with all forms of security challenges in the country.
We want to achieve a transformational government. Nigeria’s greatest assets lie in the north, and Nigeria’s greatest assets are the vast uncultivated lands in the north, but these lands have been seized by bandits. We will open Nigeria.”
“We will bring Nigeria back to life. All the banks will be shareholders in the Agriculture Bank where our farmers can directly evaluate the loans.”

He promised to invest more in women, arguing that women are very hardworking, dedicated and committed when given responsibility, and urged Nigerians to vote for a character and ability they can trust, and that he is the candidate they can trust.
