This is not a win for me alone but a win for our dreams, hope, and struggles to ensure we make our unborn generation proud with good legacies.
I am headstrong for you Nigerians, and in due time, you will surely feel the positive impacts of my decision as it will be evident through us all.
As a patriotic Nigerian, a progressive youth, and an advocate of girl-child, I want to reiterate that I believe in the prosperity of Nigeria under the RENEWED HOPE AGENDA OF President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR.
