“The PPNTAYI platform is a vehicle to deliver my campaign promises and to ensure that vast majority of our people not just witness but are part of the transformation change; thus, moving our people from consumption to production.
“I have the burning zeal to deliver the aspiring of my people that have been abandoned for a long time.
"Having limited time that explains why I am hitting the ground rolling even before I will be sworn-in.
“I intend to use the limitless boundaries of education, especially in various endeavour of human existence, to push my people up in the socio-economic ladder.
