"Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to rebuild our

nation; to protect lives and property; to restore the respect of Nigeria

within the Comity of Nations; to re-align the political structure of Nigeria

to reflect the current realities; to revive our economy and save the naira;

to rebuild our broken-down social fabric; to create jobs for our teeming

youths and rehabilitate our collapsing educational systems among others.


"Nigerians expect PDP to return to power, so that our nation can resume

the march to greatness.


"The above tasks are no mean ones. The political pedigree, vision and

credentials of who leads the party to accomplish these tasks must

command priority attention and consideration of our great party. It is in

furtherance of this that I put forth my credentials and records for your



"I would like to state that, I have stood with our party, the PDP, in

good and bad times. Like most loyal party members, I have had my

moments of elation, as well as some difficult times but I never

moved. I have never switched parties. Therefore, I make bold to

say that I can be entrusted with the vision, mission, values and

principles of PDP as a committed party man;


"I have been privileged to understand our national problems and

appreciate their enormity and peculiarities in the last 21 years from

my vantage positions in both the legislative and the executive arms

of government. Therefore, I have a clear view of the task ahead as

well as the solutions needed to advance the cause of our country.


"My records as President of the Senate and as Secretary to the

Government of the Federation clearly show that I am more

interested in building strong institutions than seeking enhancement

of personal power or position. My records show effective and

efficient management of the nation’s diversity on the basis of

equity, justice, fairness and inclusiveness.


"I am a committed believer in the rule of law; and will always

promote and protect the sanctity of lives as well as the rights and

liberties of all citizens".
