He said he was talking to Nigerians on the need to elect him as the next president of Nigeria.
“I am talking with every Nigerian, every Nigerian is important, including the G-5 governors, as you can see, we have 200million Nigerians and the governors are five, so we need to talk to the 200million Nigerian and all of us need to make a sacrifice for our country,” he said.
