“I will ensure adequate remuneration and welfare of the Nigerian worker and advance the overhauls of our decade infrastructure, especially power, roads, railway etc to boasts economic and entrepreneurial drives nationally.

“I will transform our agricultural system to modern mechanization and developing the family to improve the value chain.
