“What I want for Governor Makinde is Presidency because I think He is more qualified. If that does not come, He can do another four years here. Everybody can see what he is doing in this state and I want to urge everyone to continue to support Him because he is doing well. That’s what we want.
“We want a performer who can elevate the fortune of the party and take care of the downtrodden in our society because that is exactly the essence of governance. So, if he is doing well and we ask him to go again, there is nothing wrong in that.”

“Really, I am short of words for it and I pray that God will continue to bless, enrich and strengthen Governor Makinde as well as give him the wisdom to navigate the ship of the party both at the state and national level.”
