“Hopefully by next year, we shall introduce, Special Unemployment Relief Fund, SURF and Poverty Alleviation Special Scheme, PASS. I’ve plans to defeat any other aspirant, including Tinubu.
“I can modestly submit that I’m getting prepared to take over from Buhari. NNPP will produce the next President of Nigeria. The next President of Nigeria, will be elected, not necessarily on the basis of party affiliation but personality.
“I’m passionate about building a better Nigeria than any other person in Nigeria. I’ve plans to empower not less than 100,000 jobless Nigerians before 2023 Presidential elections. If I fail in this perspective, then I should not be seen as a man of honour. It’s as serious as that. By His grace, I’m the next President of Nigeria.”
