“My decision to run is borne out of hunger and desire to add value and impetus against the backdrop of the yearnings of the entire people of Abia state, who believe in the youths as an option and to take Abia to the much-desired place occasioned by their cries and wishes for good governance and inclusiveness and ensuring that Abia takes its rightful place in the comity of states.
“I decided to run following calls from stakeholders, including the downtrodden, traditional rulers, and eminent sons and daughters of Abia state, and to take up the gauntlet, to stand in the gap to shield our people from any form of hopelessness.
“Having seen the roles and contributions of our past leaders, there's no gainsaying that they have done their best, but I'm here to reinvigorate our spirits, minds, and souls to the much-vaunted dreams of our people for a better life.

“I have watched a common denominator in believing in the youths as it is said, that a state that carries along her youths prepares them for a better future.
“Without the efforts of the past leadership, however, it has become necessary that I bridge the gap, restore stability, and rebuild the confidence of our youths and the good people of our state.
“To that extent, I have joined in this race with my full chest, to say I appreciate other people who as well aspire for the same position, but however, I pledge that I offer a better option, to galvanize the young people, the men, and women of Abia state, to instill a sense of belonging in our administration, which will bring hope and pride to our people.”
