In his thirteen point agenda, he promised to build on what all previous administrations in the state including military regimes had accomplished.

As part of his People’s First Agenda, he promised to scale-up  the agro-revolution, see that industries work optimally, expand access to free and qualitative education and also develop our existing and new tourist sites.

He equally promised in his thirty four pages People’s First Agenda to preserve the physical environment through conservation, centralise and coordinate the book keeping and registration of public revenues and expenditure besides completing all projects inherited from past administrations.

He insisted that the governorship of the state is not child’s play but a call to service which he does not take lightly.

He also called on all to join hands with him in the task to emplace a People’s First Agenda for the overall development of the state.
