According to him, “If you look at the UK, things are working well there; the institutions of government respect law and humanity; the political parties adhere to the rules of engagement; they don't breed political thugs nor allow the subversion of people's will.
''These are things we must first of all tackle if we want Nigeria to work for all of us, and this is the reason our party is looking at a 'New Direction', because we cannot continue to do same thing same way all the time and expect another result."
The ADP presidential candidate noted that his party is in collaborative talks with UK’s Conservative Party, adding that the Conservative Party will assist by providing technical support and capacity building to ADP.

Sani added: “The political and socio-economic activities in Nigeria have not been for the benefit of the people. We must find a way to change that, and by implication, we must start the reform and orientation shift from our political parties.”
According to him, his visit to the United Kingdom is one of many where he is working to bring investors to Nigeria if he emerges as the next president.
The presidential hopeful was recently awarded by the United Nations for his contribution to the political and socio-economic activities in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Action Democratic Party on Sunday, October 7, elected Yabagi Yusuf Sani as its presidential candidate.
