He urged the new chairman to be open and transparent in his dealings with members of the party as much was expected from them.

Responding, Ohuotu promised to provide quality and responsible leadership and appealed to other members of the executive to join him in efforts to take the party to greater heights.

He also appealed for the support of the elders and leaders of the party for his executive council so that the party could win the governorship election, scheduled for Nov. 21.

The state governor , Mr Idris Wada, in his remarks, said the new executive was coming at a critical period in the life of the party and urged them to come with strategies and ideas that could match the growing influence of APC in the state.

He also urged the new chairman to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party and commended them for their peaceful conduct during the state congress.

Wada also stressed the need for the party to regularly hold meetings at state, local government and ward levels to ensure peace and give all members a sense of belonging. (NAN)
