According to her, the only condition that can make her withdraw from the race would be the readiness of whoever will emerge winner to address the growing poverty in the country.

She said, “It is so obvious and all of us know that it is time for a mother to come on board. Everybody, including Mr President came from a woman. As it is today, insecurity, and other things, the children need motherly care. We can understand that from their attitude. I have never been a politician but because of what I have seen, I just felt I should come on board.

“The major solution I am bringing on board is to involve the commoners, less privileged, in the governance of the country. If we don’t involve, the killing of the commoners they will kill the elite. We must involve them to get them to understand what is going on. Nigerian youths are very intelligent and instead of using them negatively, we use them positively for the growth of the country.

“I am going to localise the construction of roads and many other things. I won’t copy the westerners all through because they have their way of constructing it which makes it very expensive. I want to localise Moston the roads and involve indigenes of those areas in constructing them. They will generally get involved and get paid. It will reduce unemployment, keep busy and out of mischief.”
