According to him, while in the saddle as chairman of EGCDF for four years, he was able to execute more than 116 visible projects, provide jobs and gave scholarships to people across communities under the foundation.

The Delta South Senatorial Seat front-runner, promised to consistently interact with his constituents if he emerges the APC flag-bearer and ultimately, Delta South Senator in 2019.
