“As a government, we appreciate the fact that only a man with a firm vision and love for his country could undertake such a long journey, notwithstanding the rigours of preceding unsuccessful attempts.

“ Your doggedness and uncompromising posture of always standing for what is right, just, equitable and fair, will no doubt, serve as key drivers in your administration’s quest to deliver on the various lofty electoral promises.

“It is against this backdrop that we wish both you and your able vice, good health, vigour and the wisdom to pilot the affairs of the nation in the next four years.

“In the same vein, we also join millions of Nigerians and the international community in commending and applauding the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan for a smooth transition,’’ Dickson said.

He noted that Jonathan had left behind a legacy that guarantees the sustenance of democracy, as well as the stability of the country.

The governor assured that the state government would work closely with the Buhari administration and rally support of the people to remain committed to the unity, stability and prosperity of Nigeria.
