“Also, I want to assure you all, I’m going to House of Representatives to work for the good of Isoko Federal Constituency. I’ll be able to liaise at Abuja for development and empowerment of Isoko people.
“At Abuja, I will fight for the employment of our youths of Isoko, and I will also fight for establishment of businesses for our people to be economically empowered.
“You all here have the capacity to reset the country, but then, you all must go to your various wards and units to campaign seriously for all candidates of our party the PDP.
“The PDP is conscious of its previous mistakes and they are ready to make things right. I must charge you to go to the grassroots and work to reset the country,” Ukodhiko added.
