"Rest assured that I will not derail or deviate from my electoral promises to you. On my honour, I will work closely with our Governor, His Excellency, Yahaya Bello to ensure that the interest of our constituency and the state is protected.

"You may recall that in a bid to kick start the revamping of the greatest asset our country need for her development,  which is fortunately on our soil, in concert with our Governor, I led a delegation of over 100 members of National Assembly to Ajaokuta Rolling Steel Mill led by the then Speaker, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

"Today, to the glory of God, our President has graciously approved the revamping of Ajaokuta Steel Mill, having concluded arrangement with the Russian firm. The Memorandum of Understanding will be signed come January 2020.

"You are all aware that I have always fought to ensure that our rights get to our people despite distractions from my brothers who felt that it must be them. However I don't consider them as setbacks but beauty of democracy though it comes with a price. I was able to sponsor five bills and of course with fifteen resounding motions.

"My dear people of Ajaokuta, Yuletide is here again when most of our people come home because of the holiday, especially our Christian brothers who will be celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. As I celebrate with them, I urge them to use this period to reflect on the joy the birth of Jesus Christ brought to the world. Such sacrifices for the salvation of man should be our guide us in our relationships with our brethren.

"And for our motorists and riders, I pray that you may observe all safety regulations as you ride and drive to live and not to die. Drink responsibly because we love you because it is when you are alive that you will join hands with us to uplift the state. 

"As we usher in New Year, I urge us all to renew our strength and be more creative in whatever we do. Rest assure that our Governor is a listening leader and he will surely play a role where necessary to uplift the welfare of our people and motivate us towards as we join hands in building Kogi State of collective dream.
