“There has never been a time when Nigerians need serious leadership than now.
“PDP is in a better position to offer Nigerians that desirable leadership. That is what I want to offer. I want to offer solutions to our problems.
“I have experience at the lower and highest level. As a vice president of Nigeria, I made much progress in national transformation.
