” I am more prepared for the senate than the incumbent to be frank with you,because if you look at what we have done in the passed seven and a half years compared to the Twelve years of the current occupant of the seat you would have every reason to support us than vote for what is best described as wasted years.
” I want to ensure that my contribution at the floor of the National Assembly in terms of making laws will be what will benefit my constituents as well as strengthens democracy and add value to governance” He said.
