He said: “ I renew the message of peace, hope and development of our dear state and the principles of seamless continuity and consolidation.
“I reaffirm my commitment to seeing through the legacy of the present four-point agenda and once again commit to all our campaign promises in the 17 local government areas of the state.
“From the 17 local government areas, the people spoke eloquently with their votes and entrusted on me the responsibility of rendering selfless service to our dear state.
“I am deeply humbled by that mandate reposed in me and I hereby accept it with all sense of humility and gratitude.’’
The governor-elect commended the 22 political parties that endorsed him as governor and other stakeholders including former Senate President Ken Nnamani, former governors Jim Nwobodo, Okwesilieze Nwodo and Dr Chimaroke Nnamani.
Others were Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, Admiral Allison Madueke and Group Capt Anthony Oguguo.
He extended a hand of fellowship to fellow governorship to the other contestants and promised to work with them.

“As we move on politically, we want to move the state forward politically and economically. I want to promise that as much as possible, we will carry everyone along.
“I want to you to continue supporting the governor,’’ he said.
