According to him, when he was much younger, he promised to make his mother proud, saying he assured her that he will build a house for her to stay in.

He said: “Since I could not accomplish that before her death, I decided to build this to honour her and in memory of her.”

Eulogizing his mum, the vibrant politician said she was a peace loving person.

“A lot of persons know her. She is not the troublesome type. She was a woman of the people and one anyone would want to be with. She contributed so much to my upbringing. She was a godly person and her lifestyle shaped my life and has kept me going,” he said.

He expressed delight that people came from far and near to grace the occasion.

He used the medium to call on the Abraka people to keep hope alive, saying that Year 2021 will be a great year and all will be well and okay.

“Abraka will be a great place in the near future and just like in my New Year message to them, they must not lose hope,” he opined.
