Hear him, “Part of my manifesto apart from making laws is to ensure that my constituency will get part of what is due to them in total. I will also better the lives of the youths, women and elders and ensure that there will be employment for everybody.

“I want to bring to the notice of people in my constituency my intention to contest for the position of House of Assembly under APC. And I also want to solicit your support. Some of us may say who is this man? I am a full grown man of this community. Most elders here are quite aware of my person.
“I did not just come from outside. I have been part and parcel of the people. But the truth is that I have not been in politics. Reason being that the coast had not been cleared. When I say the coast had not been cleared is because when you want to do something you look at the platform that befit you. Also, the Bible says in the book of Ecclesiastics that “There is time for everything”. I believe this is the time for me. By the grace of God,

Speaking on why he intends to contest under the platform of APC, Ejegi who said he is a Pastor of World Life Bible Church and his father, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has found him capable and worthy to be giving responsibility and had also blessed his adventure into politics disclosed, “I chose APC as my platform because the party stands for everything that I stood for. These are forth rightness, fair play and the love and drive to ensure that the welfare of the masses are taking care of.
Ejegi , staff of Chevron said corruption has been legalise in Nigeria because the citizen has refused to speak out against it. He, however, enjoined people of his constituency to vote him out of office if he did not fight against corruption when he eventually gets into the House of Assembly.
“In Nigeria, we celebrate corruption instead of fighting it. If we fight against corruption, it will not last. For instance, if I am representing you in the House of Assembly and there is the issue of corruption and I did not fight against it, you have the right to withdraw me from the House. This is because it is your vote that put there. I am not talking about the one that involve me, I am even talking about my not speaking out against corruption as a member of the House,” Ejegis stated.
