“I am a youth. I have been at the forefront of youth skill development and advancement. As a leader of a national youth organisation, I had contributed and still contributing my qaurter in the national development. That was why I had no choice than to yield to the calls by my people to represent them. Youths, men and women of worth from our five local government areas have approached me to join the contest. I can’t deny them their rights and privileges. I will go to serve them.
“I am going their to join others in the red chamber to make better laws for overall socio economic development of Nigeria.
