He also pledged to create 20 million jobs on his first day in office and which would be completed in one year.
According to him, he will not take a single loan throughout his tenure if elected president.
Jack-Rick who said he organized prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari when he was sick, thanked God the president is now healthier than ever.
“I will create smart jobs and will develop the oil and gas industry and optimize the oil and gas in the country.
“My presidency will strengthen our value system. We will create 26,000 jobs in each LGA on the first day in office. The opportunity, if it materializes, will see about 20,124,000 created on my first day in office.
“I will make it happen. When I create 26,000 direct opportunity jobs on the first day in office in the 774 LGAs, within one year, poverty will flee,” Jack-Rich said.
According to the philanthropist and oil and gas mogul, his plan is for the old parents, young people and everyone.
He said, “For the millennials, we need to create infrastructure that will help them to develop digital technology. You need a president that can engage the east and the west economy.
“You need a president when you travel outside the country, you will be respected. You need a president that will ensure creation of jobs, a president that can grow the economy.
“A president that can create deep private sector engagement. A president that can think for you, not himself. You need a president that will ensure the wealth in Niger Delta is not for the region alone but a president who can utilize it for the benefit of all.
“You need to have control of your economy and the control of your children. With the Jack-Rich presidency, we will produce more, plan more and be respected in the community of nations. We will strengthen our currency and create jobs for youth,” Jack-Rich said.
He also said that all he sees is hope and that all he need is the right legislation to back up his plans.
He said, “We will not make policies that will not be backed up with action.
He said that President Muhammadu Buhari has given them the platforms to showcase their ability and that the president of Nigeria is the president of the black race.
“All these good ideas will be a mirage if we did not get the right leader to take over from Buhari.
On insecurity, he said, “The best way to stop all these crimes is the oil and gas and I am in that industry and we can do it. Everything that I worked for will go to humanity.”
