“Even the Northerners; everybody has a problem in Nigeria. Nigeria as it is today is insecured, Nigeria is not unified and Nigeria is unproductive.
“It is collapsing. They are looking for a fixer. Somebody who will start creating wealth, not about where is this. Where you come from is important, because some people can say we are looking for equity and justification, which is necessary in a diverse country.
“But most importantly, we want someone who will start creating wealth in the Nigeria.
“You need to check my track record. Am a trader. I have operated in the Corporate world. I have been a Governor. That’s the record you need to check. You don’t need to ask me. Just check my trajectory. And I have been everywhere in the World and I believe I can fix Nigeria”.
