I Am Offering Myself Again – Senator Alimikhena

By John Efosa

Senator representing Edo North in the Senate, Francis Alimikhena, has declared his intention to represent the Senatorial District for a third term in the Senate.

He made the declaration on Sunday at the All Progressives Congress Secretariat at Etsako East Local Government Area of the State.

Our Correspondent reports that it was an enlarged gathering of APC chieftains, leaders, and ward executives of the party in the council.

“I thank you for all the support you have been giving me all along since my election to the Senate in 2015. I am here today again to declare my intention to seek re-election for third term.

“As I have always said in all my campaigns, I will never shortchange what belongs to Edo North;  I have done everything necessary including getting out of the box for Edo

“In our desire as lawmakers to fill in the gap, in terms of infrastructural development, I have not let Edo North down. We have done several roads while many others are still ongoing. Edo North was submerged and we have intervened through several erosion control measures.

“We have built schools, established various skill acquisition centers including a world-class Dialysis Centre at the Auchi General Hospital as well as regular empowerment programme for our youths and women.

“I was fortunate to be a principal officer in my first tenure in the Senate as Deputy Chief which because I was the only elected APC Senator in the entire South-South zone in the 2015 general election and returning back to the Senate now will be in the best interest of all of us in Edo North,” he added.

Alimikhena, told the party faithful that a very sensitive position in the Senate will be coming to the South-South which Edo North stands the chance of clinching only when he is back to the Senate.

He said he had done it before and was set to do much more adding that he needed the support of the people and their votes in the forthcoming APC Primary election.
