He lamented that even though some persons in government are afraid of his rising profile, and making fruitless efforts to stop him from the race, insisting that he will not be deterred by their antics.

According to him, the state government has not accorded him a level playing ground like others, stressing that their calculation and projections were to create bottleneck in the wheel of his success.

He admitted his confidence in INEC and security agencies in being professional in exercising their responsibilities, adding that all things being equal and with the massive support of voters , he has become a candidate to beat.

” I have an agenda for the state which is holistic and not sectional. My desire is to see our state better than what it is now. Although, there are mounting challenges -from the poor situation of civil servants, poor infrastructures – we are out to correct them, to make the state what it ought to be, these are the reasons that make me to offer myself for the race, he stressed”.

” My manifesto is explicit on what we intend to achieve for the state. My Seven Point Agenda will be vigorously pursued if elected and I’m confident that with their massive votes we are going to achieve our aims.

” This morning, a circular has been issued to Traditional rulers not to receive me in their palaces , but I’m undaunted because I have infectious followers across the state, who whole heartedly accepted my candidature, making me a candidate to beat in this election, you can feel it from the pulse of the people and they know this and that is why they are scared of me.” He stated

He therefore called on his supporters to remain within the ambit of the law, no matter the intimidation, harassment advising that they should not be provoked by any action.

” We are peace loving and law abiding people. I appeal to my supporters across the state not to be provoked as the constitution guaranteed freedom of association and to move freely to campaign and we are doing this with strict compliance with the law of the the land.
