According to him “Working under President Muhammadu Buhari in the last seven years has greatly exposed me to series of security and economic challenges facing the country which I am in a better position to address due to exposure and opportunities given to me by the President.”

“Being the Vice President of Nigeria in the last few years was a great opportunity that placed me in the front burner against other aspirants contesting for the presidency. As soon as I get to the office God willing in May 2023 I would hit the ground running for a more prosperous Nigeria,” he said.
