To his electoral value, Hon.Peter had largely fulfilled his social contract with his constituents far beyond his targets within this these years of his service. In areas of education, health, and portable water, the achievements are eloquently vast across his constituency

To Hon.Sunday Peter is a message of hold on you have not yet seen other side of me. Expects more from me in two  years to come,I’m pregnant with a lot of good tidings to my people. Tidings of change the life of many through my sponsored bills and many of my bills being process to law.


His indelible mark of trust and confidence in achieving a lot within the span of two years has made him to earned reliance confidence by the Executive committee of the All Progressives Congress party. (APC) of Guyuk Local Government. Of recent the entire governing council of the Local Government made up of 20 members, 10 wards chairmen officially wrote a letter reposing a “vote of confidences” on him basing their reasons that the eloquent and erudite Leader is excellently representing the constituency well in a manner that is never been done before.

In the letter signed by the chairman of the party, Alhaji Yaya Bodai stating one of their other reason is the high level of transparency style leadership Sunday is exhibiting to the people of Guyuk. This character is holding him the most reliable and available lawmaker with an impeccable listening ear.

The letter reiterated that Sunday is a servant leader whose selfless service to humanity is distinguishing him to be a politician with an assurance of better performance if he can be entrusted with a higher responsible.
