Babatunde Fashola, who is seeking to become Nigeria’s first democratically elected president, says his party is working to transform the country’s economy.

Speaking at the International Labour Organisation general conference in Cancun – Mexico, Fashola said the NPP had introduced many people from different walks of life to the party, and this was one of its major achievements.
