According to him, “I think we should chose our leaders based on their competency, character and experience if we must get it right in the 9th National Assembly, rather than reducing the race to religious or ethnic one, at the National Assembly, we should be thinking of what bound us together as Nigeria, and not what divides us as a Nation.

“Gbajabiamila and Wase cumulatively have over 20 years experience in the House of Rep, they are competent and they have being a stabilising factor in the House of Rep, so supporting them will give the the 9th National Assembly a strong footing in this present political dispensation.”
