2. INSURGENCY & INSECURITY
I have had the rare privilege of serving my country in the

General and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. I

I pledge to:
As Commander-in-Chief, lead from the front and not behind

Program’s(UNEP) recommendations on Ogoniland.

Diversity refers to the inherent complexities of the variations
in the social fabric of a people. Elements of poorly managed
diversities include absence of cohesion, low capacity or
political will to address resulting tensions, weak institutions
of the state, in-equalities in every facet, impunity,

collective resources. We promise not to leave any Nigerian
behind in our determination to create, expand and ensurei
equitable and effective allocation of economic opportunities.
No matter the amount of funds we generate, unless there is
an efficient and effective utilization, it will only create few
billionaires. Unless we fight corruption, the economy will
only benefit the greedy in our society.
I pledge to:
Work with the legislature to strengthen constitutional
provisions to make the meetings of the National Economic
Council more periodic and predictable and its decisions
more binding.
Present annual report on the state of the economy to the
National Assembly and the Nigerian People.
The Preparation of Medium Term Expenditure Framework

emptive strategies to halt the current frequent incessant

of corruption. Despite investment of more than X there is
nothing to show but few fat cats.
I pledge to:
War against corruption in the power sector
