According to a statement by his media assistant, Michael Jegede, the Senator, representing Kogi Central Senatorial District made the call while addressing the mammoth crowd that came to show him solidarity, upon his arrival in Okene to formally inform members of his constituency that he was still in the race for the senatorial election.

Abatemi-Usman was among the Senators who recently quitted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as a result of the injustice meted out to them in the last primary election of the ruling party. He has secured the ticket of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) to pursue his second term ambition in the Senate.

The PPA senatorial candidate in Kogi Central while thanking the people for their support since they wholeheartedly elected him as their political leader in 2011, said: ?I thank you all for your unflinching support all this while since you gave me the mandate to represent you in the Senate. I have come to let you know that I am still fully involved in the senatorial contest for Kogi Central holding on February 14, 2015. I am now running on a different platform which is the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA). My dear people, I seek your continued support and I assure you that I will not relent in my pursuit to ensure the sustenance of peace in Ebiraland, where political thuggery and violence will continue to remain a thing of the past. I urge you, and indeed, the entire Nigerians not to vote for party in the coming election, but to look out for credible candidates that will change things for the better in the interest of the masses, irrespective of the political party on whose ticket they are running in the election.?

The Senator?s constituents who willingly came out en masse to welcome him, said they are ready to vote for him on any platform he is running because, according to them, he has proven his worth as an outstanding leader in the discharge of his responsibilities, adding that since his emergence as the Senator of Ebiraland, peace has come to stay in the area.
