According to the Traditional leader;
“All Bende has felt the Impact of your leadership and representation. I have gone to many communities in Bende, and everywhere and I have seen the things you have done. There is nothing more to say other than the entire Umuhu Community will follow your moving train”
“Come rain, come shine, be rest assured that the votes of the Umuhu Community are for you on the 25th of February”
