“You may all recall that we worked tirelessly during the last  General Election in 2019 with me as the Gubernatorial Candidate of the PDP. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to everyone for the opportunity given to me to fly the flag of the party” he added

“Once again, thank you for giving me the opportunity to address the State Working Committee of our great party.

“My Dear People of Kaduna State, Come let’s Rescue and Rebuild Kaduna State! With your support, it is possible” he averred
