“My vision is centred principally around the people, economy, agric, education and power.

“It’s a well-defined pathway towards massive development of the above-mentioned sectors that will have a multiplier effect on our IGR, give a boost to small and medium-scale businesses and turn our state into a hub of agricultural produce.

“This will further create job opportunities that will eliminate crime, unemployment and boost productivity in many sectors.

“I have the competence which I have exhibited in the few public offices I have had the privilege of holding and in my private businesses which have recorded tremendous growth over the years,” he said.

The Special Adviser on Youth Matters to the immediate-past sole Administrator of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) added that his understanding of the core issues and expectations of the people will enable him to be result-oriented in meeting their expectations.

“My dear good people, it’s time to allow a youthful leader who has deep knowledge of the era and can appropriate the right kind of skills to give leadership that will see our state move to a pride of place among the committee of states,” he said.
