When the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)opened the window for political activities to begin, many people including you, resolved to buy forms to contest for the governorship seat of the state.But as time went on, We called ourselves together and said the incumbent Governor has not done badly. We began to take stock, We looked at the by-pass, a place that was kind of swampy, today that place has become an industrial hub; and this was done in three years.Justifying their decision further, he maintained that, Often times when we hear people say you have not done this nor that, they forget to also mention what you have done. I tell people that if somebody comes into power and has built road, the next person should focus on doing something else, and that is what Ayade has done by industrialising the state and that is why we have decided that we are going to drop our ambitions and support you.Continuing he said by adopting the governor the parties were adopting industrialization, prompt payment of salaries, economic growth and a good man with a good heart.Speaking in a similar vein, assured the governor that forty thousand members of our group would gather on the 26th of January to support you.We have come enmass to adopt you as the governor of this state, and we are going to demonstrate the same on the 26 as I said earlier.Responding, Governor Ayade expressed appreciation to the parties for finding him worthy of their support and assured them that he would not disappoint them and the people of the state; adding that his love for the state overrides every other consideration.
