He said as part of effort to engage Nigerians meaningfully, he had been engaging unemployed Nigerians, adding that he recently empowered over  4,000 constituents.

According to him, there is a need for well meaning Nigerians to ensure that Nigerians were not denied jobs through expatriate employment.

The lawmaker, who was the South West representative in the Senate Ad hoc Committee on Minimum Wage that approved the N30,000 national minimum wage, said that he was focused on human capital development.

“My commitment to the dignity of labour informs my usual inclusion of skills acquisition and entrepreneurial training in my zonal intervention programmes.

“I also ensure facilitation of productive equipment for some of my constituents to be productively and profitably engaged.

” I am less interested in putting up structures which fall under the executive purview. I prefer to develop human beings to make human impacts,” he said.
