“Our decision to present him with a nomination form is informed by his developmental strides in the constituency as a member of the House of Representatives. His projects; roads, electricity, borehole among others, are still visible.

“It will interest you to know that since he left, the Ovia Federal Constituency have been abandoned, the present occupant has not done anything, to either improve or match what she met on ground.

“What we are saying is that, we want Hon Osahon to go back to the House and do what he did before.

Iyare said members of the constituent have pledged to support the former representative members to actualise this goal.

According to him, “You will recall that some few weeks ago, I did spoke on the ill-treatment have been melted on me by the party, but today, the story is that of sweetness.

“Today is not about complain, but a good message as far as my constituent is concerned. I am indeed overwhelmed by this show of love and can only do my best not to fail you all.

“My people have always been my interest, which account for my performance while in the House. You support also did some magic,” he stated.

He appealed to members of his constituent to also extend same supper to Gov Godwin Obaseki, whom he described, as a man poised to changed the narrative of the state.

“You all can see what the Governor is doing to industrialise the state, he needs our support to actualize the good things he has started in the state,” he said.
