According to her, “the governor has initiated a democratic revolution of the entrenchment of one-man-one-vote.

“In spite of his privileged position, the gully erosion ravaging Edo North senatorial District, with particular reference to Auchi, could not be presented to the front burner of national discourse b y Senator Yisah Braimoh because his godfather has not asked him to do so.

“We are yet to hear Senator Braimoh’s private motion on the need for the Federal Government to hurriedly dualized Auchi-Abuja due to the high number of accidents on the road which claimed numerous lives.

“The intention of the federal government to open up the Afemai nation to the rest of the country via the construction of a bridge across River Niger from Agenebode to Idah, could not be brought to the fore by Senator Braimoh because his godfather has not instructed him.”
