Why are you aspiring to contest under PDP?

I’m aspiring under PDP for the lost hope I got from APC Government, the failed promises, the selective justice, and corruption that is reigning in this government. These factors have been posing a serious threat to our democratic values and principles. I believe PDP is the winning party come 2020 as far as Dekina Local Government which am vying to serve is a concern.

From the information available at our disposal, your late Father was a bigwig and a renowned chieftain of the APC and you were also a member of the APC, why did you dump your party for the PDP?

For too long, I watched the APC governance in my state going against all the good things that will bring developments to my state.

I have always seen the political party system and position as privileged platforms to serve the people and not-self, members of one’s family, clan, or cronies but the APC today serves their immediate selfish interests, that of their family and cronies too. I can’t be part of that and my late father would never have been part of that too.

Am very happy to be part of the PDP family. I will join this great party in the pursuit of a better Nigeria and a better Dekina Local Government.

What are your plans for the good people of Dekina Local Government?

Well, it’s obvious that today what we are experiencing in our local government under the APC government is undeveloped and all sorts of bad governance. I desire to see that the people of Dekina Local Government will witness greater development and sustainable growth.

We have lots of road in Dekina Local Government that are in urgent need of government attention which the current government of APC is neglecting, I will make sure I do everything within my power to make sure the road is back in good conditions for our people to use. I’m very ready to enthrone positive change in Dekina.

The issue of Poverty is also glaring in Dekina, I will carry the youth along because I understand the language of poverty. I will evolve policies that would bring remarkable development to my people.


The issue of Power shortage and no power at all will be addressed. I will make sure I provide the good people of Dekina Local Government with a good power supply to allow the people to run their business that requires the usage of power.

I am a man of my words; I will not fail my people; Dekina Local Government allocation will be used for the good of all; I am coming to serve my people and not for them to serve me.

There is insecurity in Dekina Local Government at the moment; we will handle it adequately; I will work for the development of my people.

Thank You.
