"I don't want to be a Senator that will seat in Abuja and be disconnected from the people. It's best to have an office here where your concerns will be addressed. We are going to have staff here, the office will be opened from Monday to Friday. The person will take your concerns, whether it's by letters or notes, it will be sent to me and be attended to. 

"This office will also monitor and evaluate our ongoing projects, and make sure the highest standard is met. We also have collaboration with BudgIT and Tracker to evaluate and monitor our project. I have zero tolerance for contractors that take projects and fail to deliver. 

"I don't want you to think I am in PDP, therefore this office is solely for PDP; this office is for everybody. Whether you are in PDP, APC, APGA, or any other party, you are free to bring your concerns, and they will be channelled to me and attended to.

"Feel free to express your concerns and write down your opinions; they will reach me, and I will raise those issues on the floor of the Senate. Governance involves both of us playing our parts, exchanging thoughts, sharing ideas, and shaping opinions collaboratively. I'm here for you, but I need you to share your concerns.

"My effectiveness at the end of four years will be the sum of your own input, let's have this partnership together. The offices are for you irrespective of your party, let's build Kogi Central, Kogi and Nigeria together. 

"I know we have the Hausa community, Yoruba, and Igbo communities, as long as you live here, you have your businesses here and contribute your quota towards the development of Kogi Central, Kogi and Nigeria at large, this is your office. I am looking forward to your responses, feedback, complaints, and concerns, God bless you," she said.
