‘You have always supported us with your votes during elections. You voted for me during my first and second term, you have voted for Governor Sanwoolu and you also voted for our Senator, Tokunbo Abiru. The flag-off of these roads today is to reciprocate your good gestures and make you happy for your unalloyed support to our great party’, he said.
