After the primary, Idris thanked God, his co-aspirants and supporters for paving the way for him to emerge as a consensus candidate ahead of the election in 2023.
He promised to make the party proud and thanked the leaders of the party and his constituents for the unrelenting support to him.
“I will make the people proud. I will make my constituency proud and give them quality representation. I promise to give my best against all contenders from the opposition parties,” he said.
He extended his hands of fellowship to his co-aspirants who stepped down for him, promising to work with them for the good of the party.
“I wish all of us victory at the 2023 elections. May God spare our lives and reward our efforts,” he said.
