In his words “We came to commission these projects and to say thank you for supporting PDP at all levels in the last general election. Recall that I told you if you vote PDP into power you will reap bountifully. This is just the beginning of your bountiful harvest for voting PDP. More is underway.
“By God’s grace, I am just one year as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. So far, the projects and empowerments I have completed can only be comparable to the ones of those who spent 8 years in the Senate.
“I want to assure the good people of Owerri Zone that they will never regret voting me. I came to work for you all to better our lives. I will never shortchange you or withhold what will better your lives for my private use.
“My mandate is from God through you. My covenant with God is to serve Owerri Zone with integrity, diligence, commitment to bringing infrastructural developments, and massive empowerment to my people.”
Mr. Empowerment as he is popularly called explained that the driving force that has made him distinct, graceful, and distinguished from others in politics was his unflinching love for the people of his zone, Imo and Nigeria at large.
“ My love for my people and their welfare made me be ahead of my rivals. I love you passionately that’s why am in politics to better your lives.”
He further explained that more projects and empowerment will follow soonest, but appealed to the people of the zone to be patient with him as he is taking the projects and empowerments to all the nine local government that make up Owerri zone. This he reiterated was to carry everyone along and to forestall negligence of any local government.
