According to him, “when there is a trust arraignment, you will have the trustee and the beneficiaries, and the trustee that I am going to be at the senate on behalf of the Urhobo nation is a trustee of the dividend of democracy.
“And as a trustee of the Urhobo nation atq the senate, I will return home to brief our people of what I am doing with their mandate and take their feedback to the National assembly, work on it to attract more development to Delta Central.

“It’s not about grandstanding on the floor of the house but the dividend you are able to attract to your people, this is why I stand out amongst my equals’ hence the three monarchs in Ethiope LGA collectively bestowed on me the title of “Aghwemutuwevwi of Idjerhe” Kingdom because of the level of development I attracted to the LG.
“So, support me to enable me to expand the dividend of democracy to the ether Urhobo nation, I believe so much in Urhobo nation, all my investments are in Urhoboland, all my children schooled in Nigeria, not because I can’t afford to send them abroad, but I think we should build our infrastructure to also attract others.
“I grew up in Sapele and you all know you can relate to me, some of my classmates are even amongst you and my friends are here too, no matter what happens you know I will always return to this place as my home, that is why I am begging you to vote for a friend you can relate with easily, a friend you can question if he does not deliver.
