He bemoaned that the north was beset by poverty and insecurity, while the south was investing heavily in large-scale infrastructure projects, including as a highway for 15.6 trillion naira.

He emphasized that serving the people through public service is a means, not an end, and that effective leadership necessitates a commitment to the welfare of all residents.
