He said: â€œthe southwest is one zone that is the most important zone in this country, because the southwest is becoming the most cosmopolitan zone where all Nigerians come.
â€œThe southwest zone is a mini-Nigeria. Anything that happens here touches every party of this country.
â€œWhat we can promise you is that we will make sure that we run our government transparently. Weâ€™ll ensure good governance. Weâ€™ll run and administer Nigeria without any inclination to religious or ethnic nationality.
