Kwankwaso said, “I stand on my honour to offer a paradigm shift in leadership. There is no gainsaying that all is not well with the polity.

Change has again become inevitable. To live is to witness changes because change is an inseparable part of living.

Come May 2019, the narrative of helplessness, buckpassing, division, poverty, insecurity and hopelessness must change for a new dawn of confidence in building a one well restructured Nigeria. “I assure you that while I do not have the prophetic power to predict the future. We certainly have in us the ability to create the future that we want”.

I want to lead a Nigeria where people are educated and exposed beyond the confines of their tribe, religion, linguistic group or place of birth. “l want to lead a Nigeria where citizens respect their leaders and leaders lead and forge a team to promote and protect the interest of all Nigerians. “I want to lead a Nigeria where all are comfortable anywhere and on any positive issue can compete fairly with their peers without favour or discrimination.
