“On food security, I will ensure the return of our displaced people to their farmlands to ensure national food security.
” I will fight unemployment and poverty amongst our youths and embark on massive reconstruction of our destroyed communities so that people would return to their ancestral homes, while we seek more support from humanitarian agencies.
