His words:

“Nigerians are suffering across board. We need a leader that is at the peak of his career, not a leader that is almost declining, we don’t need 80-year-old, 70-year-old president.
“The problems of Nigeria need a youthful mind to engage it. I am the only candidate that will tackle security, that will tackle unemployment, that will take all Nigerians as one, there will not be a difference between youths in the north and south.”

He said that Accord as a party is one that represents unity, therefore, a president from the party is a guarantee of unity for the country.

He added:

“If you have a president that is from Accord, do you know the meaning of accord, accord means oneness and progress. The party represents unity.”
