The former governor of Lagos state said his opponents rather than articulating issue-based campaigns, are resorting to open attack on persons and personalities, adding that they lacked focus and direction.

Apparently referring to the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s administration in the past, he said they squandered the goodwill and betrayed the trust bestowed on them by masses of the country.

His words:

“We shall allow the desperate, devoid-of-substance campaigns of others engage in divisive identity politics and the promotion of untruths and ugly rumours.
“We, the APC, shall continue to stand before the Nigerian people to discuss the real issues of the day and offer insight into the policy solutions we intend to deploy to solve them. In this, we remain the best and only hope for progressive good governance in Nigeria.
“Few nations are as well-endowed as Nigeria, given our industrious, energetic population and our vast inventory of land, water and natural resources.
“Our beloved nation has abundant, commercially viable solid mineral deposits such as coal, limestone, iron ore, bitumen, lead, zinc, gold and a variety of gemstones.

“It is the obligation of government to use these gifts wisely to benefit the nation and improve the living standards of the average Nigerian.”

The presidential candidate said the solid mineral sector alone can turn around the fortune of the country, noting that Ajaokuta Steel Company would become operational and be contributing to the country’s GDP.
