My dear good people and Leaders of Esan North East and Esan South East Federal constituency, it gives me a great sense of gratitude to God Almighty for making it possible for me to emerge as the APC candidate in the upcoming election into the Federal House of Representatives representing the aforementioned constituency after the just concluded primaries.
This feat will not be possible if not for your kindest and surest support and prayers. It behoves on me to use this medium to express my sincere appreciation to God Almighty, my adorable wife Mrs MERCY JOHNSON OKOJIE for all your love and support, to all my family members, friends and well-wishers. I thank you all.
In the coming days, I and my team shall be embarking vigorously on more tours throughout all the wards of our constituency, meeting with stakeholders(both leaders and constituents) so as to foster and deepen the already harmonious relationship that will bring about the very best ways of meeting the dire needs of the good people of Esan North East and South East constituency. There is a lot to be done no doubt and with all hands on deck, we shall surely get to the promise land.
THE MISSION HAS INDEED BECOME A MOVEMENT.
