He said “most of you will be wondering why I have decided to contest for the Councillorship in my ward, but if you know my passion for helping the vulnerable, you will understand why I have decided to run for this position, but I am promising you that I will work tirelessly to make the impact you desire in this democratic setting that is being run by listening leaders of the party and a workaholic governor Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.”
