WHAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE
Growing up in Nigeria’s lower middle class meant I had the opportunity to experience fully the problems facing and possibly even plaguing the country, problems that are economic, developmental and also governance in nature. My candidacy seeks to solve problems in 3 key areas, which are education, economic, and empowerment and the key components of what I intend to achieve are:
Continuously support and expand the already existing NHIS to rural communities, new settlements and artisans.
Partnership with CSO, NGOs on maternal and child health advocacy, family planning awareness campaigns.
Focus on girl child education and empowerment for rural and urban women.
Localize investment: Encourage local investment by providing means and offering incentives to people/businesses willing to invest in rural parts of Bayelsa and also create initiatives that encourage banks ready to expand to rural Bayelsa.
Facilitate the setting up, construction and financing of productive infrastructure in rural Bayelsa.
Ensure access to loans for small business owners and people willing to go into business by creating a system that supports and helps build unique business ideas. Including tax cut
Ensure gender equality is prioritized and females and people with disability would be encouraged in every way possible.
Give people with unused land the opportunity to adopt business plans that would ensure income generation.
Expand on the already thriving agricultural projects with special incentives by creating the school and farm project settlements through joint venture partnership.
Cash in on trending and thriving businesses like beauty and lifestyle industries by creating schemes that sees these industries thrive in Bayelsa.
Encourage and develop a healthy entertainment industry indigenous to Bayelsa by partnering with already existing universities to broaden their curriculums to include entertainment, beauty, sports and lifestyle academics (film, music, comedy, photography, spa, fashion etc.) This would be achieved through Public Private Partnership
Create low-cost housing with strategic goals in mind.
Spread investment opportunities across all senatorial districts.
Build a rich tourism industry that would showcase to the world our rich culture and heritage.
Prioritize policies on crime prevention, security awareness, and self defense.
Create or strengthen existing state run micro finance and community banks
Actively engage youths and women with a special priority on the girl child initiative.
Human capital development and massive investment in sports, ideas, skills acquisition with a major focus on youths and women.
Appeal to all well meaning Ijaw sons and daughters to come back home and support the government, partner and invest in their land. Inclusive governance for all.
Network with other south south/ south East Governors and stakeholders on building a formidable economy and effective sea. Land and air industries.
WHY VOTE FOR ME
Haven built a thriving career as a fitness and wellness professional, an anti-corruption crusader, child and mental health activist, an entrepreneur with successful businesses that cut across entertainment, tourism and preventive health management, and more importantly a successful career in community organizing. As a criminologist and security expert, I understand the depth of the business aspect of security and my government would invest massively in these areas.
As a social activist and a development enthusiast I have supervised various community interventions to ensure the protection of and the rights of children. In 2017, I spearheaded a campaign to encourage adoption of abandoned children in line with state the Adoption laws. My work with women and children ensured the passage and implementation of the Education and Health bills in Lagos State.
It is an obvious fact that my dear Bayelsa State needs to aggressively continue the restoration agenda and my candidacy intends to bring in fresh and new ideas that are grounded in reality and backed by rigorous research and implemented with technology ensuring Bayelsa is ready for the future that would be technology driven.
