At the same time, we thank the people of the State for giving us their mandate during the 2015 and 2019 elections. We recognize that they had many choices among the many aspirants and candidates, but settled for our ticket and the APC. We cannot take this for granted as we are humbled by this responsibility bestowed upon us to work for the peace, progress and development of Plateau State".
