I have learnt over the years that impactful leadership comes from visionary leaders offering selfless service to humanity, i am all about the progress of my country, Nigeria, and the youths of this great nation at large.
This is not a win for me alone but a win for our dreams, hope, and struggles to ensure we make our unborn generation proud with good legacies.
I am headstrong for you Nigerians, and in due time, you will surely feel the positive impacts of my decision as it will be evident through us all.
As a patriotic Nigerian, a progressive youth, and an advocate of girl-child, I want to reiterate that I believe in the prosperity of Nigeria under the RENEWED HOPE AGENDA OF President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR.
