It’s Nigeria’s Independence Day again!
We are happy to join all Nigerians to celebrate this occasion – Nigeria @62.
As Benins, we have so much to be grateful for – especially our proud, heroic heritage.
We are not unmindful of the great love and peace that God Almighty has shown us, even in these tough times.
Let us continue to trust Him to make us a more closely knitted people as we forge ahead in the midst of all the challenges we face daily, while we build on the gains of this democratic era.
I shall continue to rely on your never ceasing support as we journey to the ‘Red chambers’, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, in my quest to put Edo South in her place of pride among the ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.
Let us celebrate in humility and be assured of better days ahead of us.
A greater Edo South is possible.
Happy 62nd Independence Day!!!
