Also speaking before the commission, Hon. Halidu Danbaba expressed joy and satisfaction with the activities of the vanguard, saying that "I am overwhelmed with the mammoth crowd of APC family that I am seeing on ground here and especially the billboard which is about to be commissioned in a matter of minutes." 

"There's no doubt about the good work of the Hon. Omar Bio Political Vanguard, Kaiama Chapter, and by God's Grace APC would retain power come 2023," Danbaba said.

While commissioning the billboard, the chieftain of the APC and Shantali of Ilesha-Baruba, Hon. Ahmed Umar Sabi, charged the group to remain salflessly committed to the objectives of APC and focus on mass mobilisation of voters, stressing the need for all to work harmoniously for the victory of the party. He noted that a vote for the broom party, APC will guarantee consolidation and sustainability.

The climax of the event was the formal commissioning of the billboard located along Kugiji Road at Shirigwaria junction in Wojibe ward, Kaiama LGA, Kwara State. The billboard was commissioned by the Shantali of Ilesha-Baruba, Hon. Ahmed Umar Sabi.

The high point of Hon. Omar Bio's visit to Kaiama LG was engagement with the constituents at the lawmaker's constituency office located along Tenebo Road, Kaiama, Kwara State.

Addressing the people, Hon. Omar Bio urged them to ensure they collect their PVCs to be able to cast their votes for the broom party, APC in the forthcoming general election, adding that the resolution is "APC SAK" i.e APC all through.

“I appreciate you and I'm assuring you all (by God's grace) that we are defeating the PDP in the forthcoming general election. We have done enough as a party and your representatives to seek re-election,” Hon. Omar Bio said.

The constituents, however, commended Hon. Omar Bio for not destroying co-contestants, even with so many reasons to do so, but rather telling the people what he has achieved and his next plan as the people's representative.
