He said: “It is time as a country that we do not vote on sentiment, we should not vote because we come from the same part of the country.

“We should rather vote for a man or woman that we believe will move the country forward.”


He said that if voted into power, the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) would be his major priority, to bring development to the oil sector.

“Definitely, if voted into power, that is the first thing I am going to do.

“We need it in order to provide jobs for millions of youths looking for job; we need it to improve on our oil and gas sector.

“We need to boost our economy, so it is a priority for the country, I will sit down and make sure it happens,” he said.
