Let’s keep our fingers crossed, there’s no resignation in politics. We do it and keep doing it
I went into politics because I wanted to be the definition of change in the attitude of youth and women towards politics. Enough of leaving it to some people and acting like we are not interested.
We should be involved in whatever is happening around us so I brought myself out to tell women and youth of Nigeria that if I can do it then you can do it. [In] 2019, I’m looking forward to us having the youngest presidential candidate contesting for the first time.

I’m a person who likes to speak my mind. When I see things going wrong, I don’t know how to not say it, I don’t know how to hide my feelings. But in everything we do, Nigeria should be the ultimate winner.
