He said “With 15 bills sponsorship, 12 of which are constitutional amendment bills with two of them passed by the National Assembly as part of the 23 passed Constitutional Amendment bills of the 8th National Assembly, I am one of the senators with the highest bills sponsorship. I have moved at least three motions that had led to investigation following Senate Resolutions. And in the area of empowerment, I have done two major empowerment programmes with another one coming up in September” he stated.
The Senator said that he has consistently remained a loyal party member that always followed the directives of party leaders in all his activities including his consultation in Ogun State for Governorship adding that he is back to re-contest for the position of a Senator on the directive of the party leadership and his performance in office.
