I want to thank the more than 2000 Delegates who have given me their support and trust in this elective convention.
I’m honoured to have won the votes of a majority of members, affiliated supporters and registered supporters who have given me the mandate as secretary our party.
I want to thank all the volunteers in our amazing campaign, the tens of thousands who have helped all over the country in my campaign. I also want to thank all those volunteers that worked so hard in Mr. Mustapha and Mrs. Usman campaign as well.
Volunteers and the work they put in are the very lifeblood of democracy and we both had amazing sets of volunteers, so I say thank you to them for all they did.
And I want to say thank you to Mr. Mustapha and Mrs. Usman as well. we have had an interesting campaign all over the country.
Thank you very much for all of that, for the good discussions and good humoured campaign that we have had which no doubt we will continue because we are part of the same PDP family and that’s how it’s always going to be. Thank you.
I will do everything I can to repay the trust and the support to bring our party together, to make it an engine of progress for our country and the people that depend on the PDP to protect their interests and win power to deliver real change in this country.
Elections are passionate and often partisan affairs and things are sometimes said in the heat of the debate on all sides which we sometimes later come to regret. But always remember in our party, we have much more in common than that which divides us. As far as I’m concerned let’s wipe that slate clean from today and get on with the work we have got to do as a party together.
We are proud as a party that we’re not afraid to discuss openly, to debate and disagree. That is essential for a party that wants to change the people’s lives for the better, that isn’t prepared to accept things as they are.
May almighty God bless PDP.
