“My political strength is in my sincere relationship with my friends across Nigeria.
We have been friends for decades. You can’t use over 40 years of your life to pretend, even a saying goes “a fool at 40 is a fool forever”, it goes for the wise at 40 too, it goes for the loyal at 40 too.
I did not wake up one day to say I want to lead Nigeria, I took time to understand the country and her people.
I led my own life, I led in my own career, I led my senatorial district, I led my state, I led the Progressives in my region before I became the National Leader of our progressive party.
Like in 1983, when Muhammadu Buhari introduced War Against Indiscipline, he said when we get to any place, we must queue, so I was on queue too for decades, the queue of friendship, the queue of perseverance, the queue of track records, the queue of capacity, capability and patriotism.
“Nigeria needs what I did in ExxonMobil, Nigeria needs what I did in Lagos. Nigeria needs my service. I’m 100% here and ready to serve Nigeria.”
