 One thing that troubles me, you cannot move freely in Yenagoa after about 7pm. Isn’t it? That is insecurity. We have to find away to prevent this to our people.
 We have to find away to ensure that the level of poverty in Bayelsa is reduce in such a way that the means of livelihood of every Bayelsan is provided. If I become the governor those are some of the things I must do.
