In his words, “As we look forward to the inauguration of our dear president-elect, H.E Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu on May 29th, we implore all Nigerians to keep hope alive and extend all necessary supports the incoming administration will need to have a renewed Nigerian with global influence

“As we also look forward to composition of the 10th Senate leadership, I appeal for the support of all Nigerians to be elected the President of the 10th Senate.
“I possess the vision, consensus building, charisma, experience, credibility, competence, humility and pragmatism to partner with the executive and build a new Nigeria.

“Nigeria is a country built on a tripod, (Igbo,Hausa and Yoruba) and it is right that everyone is given a sense of belonging.
