The caucus commended the founding fathers of the state for laying a solid foundation and applauded the incumbent Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, for building on the foundation laid by them.
“Our dear state without doubt, has witnessed uncommon peace, unity and unprecedented infrastructural transformation in the last five years. Thanks to His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa who has not only sustained the vision of our founding fathers, but has demonstrated determination and passion in building and expanding on the foundation laid by previous administrations in this state.
“As a people, our strength is in our diversity. Our coming together was designed by God for our common goals, aspirations and benefits. We should therefore continue to work and live in love and unity as a people with one destiny.
“Let us not take the peace, unity and love that have been existing among us for granted,” the caucus admonished, adding that, as representatives of the people at the National Assembly, they will continue to join forces with the state governor and other leaders at the various levels, to make the state the envy of others in the comity of states in Nigeria.
