“Asiwaju, if elected, will focus on agro-industrialisation, job creation, robust manufacturing and sustained innovation, establish national security architecture to obliterate terror, banditry, kidnapping, among others.

He said with Tinubu at the helm of affairs, Nigeria would be great once again.
