The retired general said he was contesting in order to restructure Nigeria.

Ogbor said: “I want to be your president so as to fix Nigeria. My government will be unequivocally committed to a unified and prosperous nation where no one and no place will be left behind.

“Right now, Nigeria is confronted with many challenges such as insecurity, unemployment, poverty and illiteracy.”

Ogbor said APGA would produce a leadership were all lives and property would be protected, adding that Nigerians needed not to despair because hope had come.

He also vowed to transform Nigeria with his five-point agenda of true federalism, social reconstruction and security.
