The retired major promised that he would demonstrate the loyalty and passion for which he is noted for.

“I decided this time around to answer to the calls of many Nigerian elders and younger ones from the North to the South and numerous associates with whom I have worked with, to accept the call and to contest.
“The passion we have for this country is much more in the sense that the challenges we face yesterday and the deep appreciation for where we are today, is for only those who truly care.
“It is that sense of awareness, that commitment driven by the energy of patriotism that brought us to the fore to face politics, ” he asserted.
Speaking further, the presidential aspirant said :
“For the last seven years since I came out of prison, we have been undertaking researches in and out of Nigeria, and our findings are extremely disturbing.
“What every committed Nigerian should do right now is to understand the enormity of the problems facing Nigeria. “
He said that it is a matter of regret that while the world is moving and making progress, Nigeria has remained stagnant.
His words:“The new world order is changing and we are not changing, the world is running with the moon and we are not, people are flying with the wind and we are not; time has changed and we remain stagnant.”
