The Senator representing Kogi Central Senatorial District, Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman, has said that he will not relent in giving the best of service to the members of his constituency by ensuring that they are properly represented in the Senate at all times.

Abatemi-Usman, who is the Vice Chairman Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, made the remark in a statement on his 43rd birthday (Tuesday, May 6, 2014) issued by Mr. Michael Jegede, his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity.

Thanking God for protecting his life all this while, the Senator who is believed to have positively affected the lives of his constituents since his emergence as a Senator in 2011 said: 'I give God Almighty the glory for making it possible for me to see this day. I thank Him for His maximum protection over my life right from the time I was born till this very day. Words are not really enough for me to express my gratitude and appreciation to God for all He has done for me.

My election as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the good people of Kogi Central Senatorial District could not have been possible without His Intervention.' The Vice Chairman Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs added: 'I promise this day that I will remain committed to the service of my people who deemed it fit to elect me as their Senator from among many that vied for the senatorial seat of Kogi Central in the 2011 general election. I will continue to remain focused and determined in the push to ensure that my electoral promises are met. I therefore crave the indulgence of my people and seek their continuous support so as to enable us move Ebiraland to the next level.'

On the general insecurity in the country, Abatemi-Usman noted that 'the time has come for a very drastic action to be taken to put a stop to the wanton killings of innocent Nigerians. I think those behind this senseless massacre must know that there is need for them to respect the sanctity of human life and desist from their nefarious and despicable activities.'
