As at today the board of trustees report is yet to be considered by NEC, yet they are holding this week, they are the main position to take choice on drafting. However it goes, I am in the race.
We host drafted the get-together office under this ongoing regulation, what we did was to zone north south, every locale currently returned and miniature zone, miniature drafting inside district.
“ If gyration is base on equity and fairness the north should allow it go to south why under zone within the south should allow it go to south east.
South east have the prerequisite experience needed, There’s no zone in this country moment that you can not find competent, able and veritably ready that can make this country great.
“ We’ve veritably able, experience, willing and ever ready that can make this country great. By the time we reduce our republic to naira and kobo, also we’re all shamefaced of setting our country back
We can work together so that nothing will say because we’re too numerous fighting each other that’s why it wo n’t come to us, we will work together to make sure we bring this to south east, who’ll represent is another issue we haven’t talk about.
Still, the applicants came together and said they need agreement, in the South East, “ If you look at what has happed in the north.
Consensus is in electoral act, no wrong in it. The advantage I’ve over other applicant from south east, I’ve public exposure.”
While assessing the APC- led government in the last seven times, he said “ Moment instability has heightend to intimidating proportion, banditry, hijacking arm thievery among others. Economic has collapse, and retirement have catching, we’ve noway as divided as this as a country.
“ Everybody in this country is crying that they should return us to where we’re in 2015. For us in PDP our charge in 2023 is to deliver this country from total collapse.”
On how to secure the nation, he said “ Two times ago I wrote an open letter to chairman that approaching instability from military angle isn’t enough, because with the town in the frugality, the frugality has shrank so small that our diligence have collapsed, severance increased, our naira downgraded.
You do n’t anticipate people to sit back and die of hunger; they will want to snare any occasion. In resolving instability, there must be profitable dimension, social dimension, and political dimension.
When you rule a country in such a way that some sections aren’t important, they aren’t part of the government, generally, there will be response. Military aspect is also important.
“ In the coming 15 times, canvas frugality will no longer be sustainable, if the diligence have collapsed because of lack of direct foreign investment, naira will cheapen and severance will increase. I’m against the position of adopting this administration has done.”

“ I can assure Nigerians that I understand what the problems are and I can assure Nigerians that I’ve clarity of what needs to be done, I’ll member them into three and face them political, social and profitable.
I can assure you that in the first one time of my administration, the difference will be clear.
