“We want the youth,women and those people that have been put in perpetual poverty to take their destiny in their own hands.They would no longer wait for the satanic and heartless people in government to continue to rule over them.
“The price of forms is one of the cheapest in the country. ASD will create the platform for people who have the principle to contest for elective positions in the country.
“There is absolutely nothing President Buhari can do with the way things are at the moment.The way Nigeria is structured by our colonial masters has put this country in a place except but if we sit down to review the governance structure,the social-economic structure of the country,there is absolutely nothing a Buhari can doand in short he has done nothing.It is all about leap service.
“The problem of this country is deep rooted right from the independence.Without clearly spelling out the principles and ideology.We are much divided in the country today and the ASD is prepared to change the story.To make Nigeria a united country.
The Ondo State coordinator of the party, Barr. Adeola Kayode explained that the party was designed for the people at the grassroot.
