He insisted that his senatorial ambition is driven by vision, excellence and impact, noting that he has never relented from imparting on the people.
According to him, “I am driven by three things-my vision for a different environment, excellence, and impact. They are very important to me. At a stage in one’s life as a successful and fulfilled man, you should be able to impact your community. I pledge to dedicate the second half of my life to serve my community and humanity.
“If voted as a senator, my immediate focus areas will be to drive legislation and multilateral investments, both locally and foreign, to empower micro, small and medium scale enterprises.
“I will promote synergy between agriculture, trade and industrial sectors as well as sustainable security architecture involving stare and community policing, as well as strengthen the relevance, quality and access to formal/vocational education, promote health insurance and improved welfare for healthcare personnel.”
