“We need a better Plateau and this can only be achieved by rebuilding it.
“Sure, we have the incumbent governor from the southern zone of the state, but we and the good people of the state, need a change that will give our people a better life, especially, with respect to good health, empowerment and better education among others.
“The incumbent Governor has done his best like others before him, but the time and the circumstances around, indicates that I put in my own input to give the desired impact.
“From what you can see, the incumbent Governor, my friend, is in the All Progressives Congress (APC), while I am vying on the platform of the PDP. This is so, because, the PDP has a better manifesto for the masses when compared with that of the APC.
“My major interests, as a governor, if given the opportunity by my party and elected by my good people, will be to consolidate on the peace in the state, introduce the state to international businesses by attracting those doing business with me to invest in the state and to better the level of healthcare and education and many more.
“I, however, want to state here that I am not ambitious, but I am a Plateau man that simply wants to contribute my quota. The Southern zone of Plateau State has four more years to be at the state’s helm of affairs and I will humbly respect that.”
