The Chairman of the House Committee on Justice, Rt. Hon.

The unprecedented OZB Empowerment Series is currently on its sixth season, and over a thousand of mostly youthful constituents have benefited from the empowerment programs.
Within the period, he has sponsored a total of eight people oriented and good governance promoting bills and motions on the floor of the National Assembly.
“My loyalty is to you, my constituents and within the period under review I have brought to the floor of the House bills and motions that I believe will directly impact positively on my people and promote good governance for the people of Nigeria. My bills include the Bill for the Establishment of Federal College of Health and Management Sciences, Amaigbo.”
