In a terse statement, he said, “I am still speechless at the massive turnout and support. I grateful to our leaders who spoke in solidarity with my humble self. They made me feel like a star!

“I am eternally grateful to my political mentor and guide,  the member representing Ukwuani LGA at the Delta State House of Assembly,  who brought me into politics and has continued to be a bulwark of support and pillar of strength. It was him who first saw the potentials in me even when every other person including myself didn’t see anything.

“I also grateful to the stand well well Delta State Chairman of the PDP Olorogun (Barr.)  Kingsley Tito Esiso who since the inception of his administration has taken me under his wings mentoring me in the process. Sir I remain loyal! Your presence today was eclectic. Thank you so much”
