“ We have the largest number of local governments in my constituency; we have 16 local governments more than some states in the federation and also twice, Bayelsa because Bayelsa is eight local governments.
“We had the hope that President Buhari will come back for a second term.
“As the Chairman, Senate Committee on Works two years ago, I was inspecting a road from one location to another and I said that the road would be completed within the first term of President Buhari and the second section would be done in the second term, people were surprised.
“But I know good people are supposed to be called to leadership again and Buhari is good; that is why we have to call him for a second term.
