He also dismissed the allegations on social media that he stepped down, assuring the populace that he was in the race as the most capable, qualified and ready to serve if entrusted with the burdens of Nigerians.
“I am on the race to win. I didn’t step down for anyone. And i cannot step down for anyone. If there is anyone to stepdown for , it is me because i am the most qualified, prepared and ready to serve. Leadership position is about readiness to carry people burden. I am ready to carry the burdens of Nigerians. I will never disappoint Nigerians if I win,” he noted.
