OUR RESOLVE AND DECISIONS
In the light of the foregoing and as a response to the collective yearnings and aspirations of our people; we have resolved as follows:

1: Recognising that at the core of our existential challenges as a people and nation is the failure of leadership
2: We affirm, that as the new face of visionary leadership for our country, we are collectively stepping into the fray, to fill the leadership vacuum, and offer leadership at this momentous juncture in our history;
3: We affirm that collectively, we are committed to the process of building a United Front to mobilize our people to lead the change we desire during the 2019 general elections;

The political crisis engulfing the APC – as demonstrated by the alleged attempt to prevent the smooth functioning of the National Assembly and the defections of some APC senators to the PDP – remind us that: both parties are one and the same. They represent what is wrong with our country, Nigeria: a lack of ideology. Our recycled political nomads criss-cross between these parties at their convenience, loyal only to their vested interest to continue "chopping" while our country remains the poverty capital of the world. This is why I am running for President. We have no alternative but to break with the past and dump these visionless politicians and move into a better future with leaders who are truly committed to serving the people. A future with jobs for the unemployed millions, functioning hospitals and schools that will produce people equippedto soar in the 21st century. We need a real #THIRDFORCE of competent and committed Nigerians will take us there.
