During the chat, The politician was asked why he thinks he has the qualifications to aspire to run for leadership.
He answered, ‘I’ve been an employer over the years, i Understand what people go through as a nation, and I could do better. I also thought within myself is it enough to set up a company and employ people or is it enough to get into active leadership and build the centre for us’.
According to him, ‘Leadership is not about speaking, its is about action’.
He added that he isn’t interested in the perks of office as he owns a company and employs over thousands of people. Okeowo also pointed that he wouldn’t live in The Presidential Villa, Aso Rock if and when he wins the election and becomes President of Nigeria.
However Olasubomi Okeowo mentioned amongst his top plans for Nigeria, that he plans to set up 20 to 40 million units of houses all over the country, linking states by rail. He also has in his plans a strategy that can put the youths to work actively while taking care of the old in the nation. Hence, creating room to improve the living standards of the people.
