It is the only way to solve the current socio-economic problems facing the country.

“The federating units must not be over-dependent on the Federal Government. The over-centralization of the polity is the very bane of our collective existence as a country. There must be a total departure from this tread. The current situation must not linger for far too long.”

Akeredolu urged voters to support a candidate in the 2023 election who has years of experience, competence, capacity, and reach.
