Ambassador Ebhojiaye who is a one man riot squad,  wants to tilt humanity towards God and progress of Esan land, however this time he is not fighting alone. He is the Coordinator/Convener of Esan speaking community of Nigeria that is at forefront to bring the dream of Esan man as Governor come 2023 into reality.

According to him, he is not thinking of going into politics, because what he is doing is more than politics, as his desire is to champion the cause of his people and deliver them from marginalisation in the politics of Edo state.

The political stability of Edo State is resting on the pillars of the power sharing formula at the state level between the Edo South and the north leaving Edo Central in the dark. In the Edo state’s political history, Edo Central Esan extraction are politically marginalised without congent reasons.
  It is the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart approves his conduct will pursue his principle unto death.  

In every generation there are a few people in whom had met the sprit and power of patriotism coupled with wisdom and political leadership. He said he is out to champion the cause of his people and see them in the forefront of politics in Edo state.

Prince Sunny Ebhojiaye said with what the Esan people have done in the past, Governor Obaseki   needs to support an Esan person as his successor. He noted that when the former APC Chairman  Adams Oshiomhole ganged up against him during the gubernatorial election, the Esan people rallied around him and voted for him, noting that he must recipocate the good gestures.

Prince Sunny Ebhojiaye believes that with an Esan person as Governor in 2023, the issue of marginalisation would be resolved.
