“You’ve known me to be a woman of courage who stands for economic development and social justice. time is of essence and the rules of democracy and dividend of democracy have always been the same but the kind of representatives we sent forth to represent us make a big difference.
“It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in a political party, the capacity and influence of the political representatives matter a lot.
“Every motion I shall present and every bill I will sponsor will be in the interest of the people of Kogi Central.
“You must be eloquent and competent to be a good legislator, that’s exactly what I am going to do.
“I promised to be the most aggressive and eloquent Senator in the National Assembly.
“It’s not about the spoken words, it’s by the content of the heart.
“By the time Ajaokuta and Itakpe are working and royalty is paid, the standard of living would be improved. I will ensure we go back to ask that the right things be done for the rights of the host community to be given to us.
“This is the people’s project, I don’t have a godfather, I wouldn’t be in the Senate and somebody would send me a note to remain silent during plenary because somebody sponsored my election.
“This is one more chance to right the wrongs of the past, collect your PVC, your votes will count, this is unlike the 2019 election when we don’t have BVAS, don’t be afraid, don’t be intimidated, don’t let terror scare you and derail from the future you want for your children.
“Our future is too important to give in to fear. Don’t look at me as someone from Okehi LGA, don’t look at me and say she’s a woman, every man is born of a woman. Look at me as a sister, as a daughter, as a mother, and as a fellow compatriot.
“It’s not too late to speak to our brothers and sisters in the other party, we will not fight them, we will make them support us through our actions. I am for everyone, this is the time to change our stories, I will be here for you and I believe you would be there for me”, she concluded.
