“All the major projects APC claimed to have done were initiated by PDP government, PDP government built secondary schools more than any other government in the state. Federal University Lafia was built by PDP, so also federal Secretariat.

“Special forces base in Doma is built by PDP,  I personally signed the memo  when i was a minister of Defence, in four years APC led administration in Nasarawa state only commissioned 2 motor parks, one in Lafia and another in Karu,” he said.

“I will build international market for exportation of agricultural products and sport complex for youths to encourage sports development in Kokona local government.”

“I  will take advantage of fertile lands and agrarian nature of the state to diversify into commercial agriculture, and also open up rural roads for easy transportation of farm products.

“Zero poverty and hunger is a number one in sustainability development goals, so our government will prioritise youths and women empowerment to enhance their economic growth.
