He urged the new leadership to “take up the new task ahead of them with all seriousness as the party now, more than ever, needs focused leadership to stay afloat and maintain the goodwill it has enjoyed over the decades in the state”.
The Speaker further hailed the party members “for conducting themselves as peacefully as the one big family of true Democrats who are on a mission of service to the society”.
He charged the Chairman Col. Kefas Agbu to work with open hands and mind to address any grievances members may have and to avail all party members the right opportunity to operate on a level playing field.
Similarly, the state Commissioner of Youth and sports Alhaji Ibrahim Adam Iman has congratulated the PDP in the state for a peaceful and successful state Congress that led to the emergence of a new state leadership of the party.
