His words: “Our problem in Nigeria is endemic, we need to re-engineer the country from its foundation, so result or outcome of elections in 2019 is not the solution.”
On Not-too-Young-to-run Bill, the ANRP Chairman described the passage and signing of the bill into law as “dead on arrival”, saying that it was a scheme for politicians’ children to take over from them.

Daniel disclosed that there were still some fundamental facts that needed to be addressed for the best interest of the Nigerian youths.
“The Not-too-Young-to-Run Bill is dead on arrival. For example which of the youth can afford N10 million forms, it won’t work until some fundamental facts are fixed. They have just created another Channel for their children to take over from them, ” he said.
He also disclosed that the party, in partnership with the British Council, was planing to train 1,000 Ogun residents on renewable solar energy as well as securing of soft loans to 100 people.
