I acknowledge all your contributions.
Let me assure you all that our priority is to work to unify all our members towards actualising our collective goal of winning all subsequent elections and entrench our party as the dominant party in our Local Government and the state in general.
Let me appeal to all of us that in all human interactions, especially in contest, there must be compromise in the spirit of give and take, bearing in mind that everybody cannot win at same time, there must be a winner or a losser.
Let us therefore, look at the greater picture and collaboratively to win elections and control the structures of power and control Government both in our Local Government and State level so that more largess will be available to take care of those who may not have favoured now.
Once again, I thank you all for the mandate and the confidence reposed in me to serve and pledge to work hard to actualise the collective aspiration of our party.
I thank you all.
Long Live APC!
Long Live Boki Nation!
Long Live CRS!
Long Live Nigeria!
