He lamented the plight of many young graduates in the state who he said had turned into tricycle (Keke) riders out of frustration of unemployment and several pensioners who have been pauperised or died prematurely.

According to him, these narratives were being recorded in Delta State due to misplaced priorities by the incumbent government “at a time when the governor is spending N2bn every month on non-issues whereas our youths have no job and our pensioners are dying of frustration.

“I offer myself as a candidate for the office of governor to right the wrongs in Delta State.”

He reeled out some of his achievements in the Senate over the past seven years.
