Senator Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman representing Kogi Central on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has restated his vow to ensure the transformation of Ebiraland for the benefit of the people before the end of his four-year mandate in the Senate.
Abatemi-Usman, who is the Vice Chairman of Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, made the remark at the palace of the Ohinoyi Anebira in Kaduna, Alhaji Sadiq Obari Isah during his visit to the Ebira community in the state.
In a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Michael Jegede, the Senator was quoted as saying that the people of Kogi Central will have cause to celebrate at the end of his tenure in office.
While enumerating the various steps he has taken so far in his effort to pave way for the growth and development of the zone, the youngest lawmaker in the Red Chamber, told the Ebira people in Kaduna that they will never regret their decision to elect him as their Senator.
“Prior to my election, I was here to seek for your prayers and support. Today, I am here to thank you all for the confidence you have reposed in me by deciding to elect me as your Senator. I want to assure you all that you won’t have any cause to regret your decision,” Abatemi-Usman, a member of African Union Parliament declared.
He added: “I love this job. I am prepared for it. And so, I will not fail to deliver and put smile in your faces. I and my team are working round the clock to bring lasting solution to the protracted water problem in Ebiraland. We are equally not resting on our oars on the issue of Ajaokuta Steel because we know the impact its completion will have on our people and the country at large.”
Responding, the Ohinoyi who said he has been in Kaduna for about 49 years, noted that the Senator’s visit was the first of its kind. The traditional ruler urged Abatemi-Usman to continue with his good work in the Upper Chamber.
Members of Ebira Peoples Association (EPA) Kaduna branch led by their President, Abdulmalik Mohammed, National Association of Ebira Students (NAES) Kadpoly chapter and other Ebira groups in Kaduna were on hand to receive the Senator whom they described as God-sent.
