He said the experience he has garnered in the past has prepared him and make him qualified for the job.
According to him, “I have been a parliamentarian and as an activist, I understand what it means to be a legislature, and I understand legislative duties having understudied how other political office operates”

The aspirant noted that it was time to give fresh hands a chance to serve the people rather than recycling the old politicians who have been in the scene for too long.
Giving chance to young politicians who are full of fresh ideas, he said, will change the narrative and further improve the level of governance.
He stressed that it was time for the younger generation to take over power and quipped, “I strongly believe that our generation today have come to realize that people are getting deep into our time, so we need to take over power from them.”
“My supporters have strong confidence in my ability to deliver being young and energetic young aspirant,” he said.
