According to the philanthropist and statesman, the citizens owe the nation a service of duty, solidarity and loyalty to make the nation greater noting that great nations of the world are built by the citizens.

“Since Independence particularly from the berth of the fourth republic in 1999, nothing has really changed in Ndokwa Nation, and Delta State at large.
“Ndokwa nation nay; Nigeria, needs collective efforts of all to function and develop because we have no other place to call our home and we must endeavour to build a virile nation where our children yet unborn can be proud to live in. The youths should eschew acts violence and work hard to build a better future. Looking round Delta State since creation, there is no visible change and even change in character is at its lowest ebb and such adds no value to any nation. Nigeria is our own, and its our duty to make it greater,” the philanthropist stated.
