“Let me salute you within the method which you might have carried out your self in a extra peaceable method and that is commendable. “It’s true that Igbo are extremely misunderstood however enable me to say that Igbo are probably the most peaceable Nigerians and wherever you discover them they’re building bridges of peace and economic growth.

If I need to run, it have to be for the empowerment of the youths of Nigeria, and if I need to run for the presidency, it is going to be to make this nation compete with different larger nations of the world economically.
