‘‘Indeed, nothing can break the collective resolve of a determined people,’’ said Irero, noting further that, ‘‘your victory at the polls was a poignant manifestation of the people’s faith in you, particularly the young generation, who saw a greater prospect in your candidature and capacity to offer quality representation.
‘‘Today, you personify the bow needed to realise the wishes and aspirations of the people of Delta Central at the Senate. We have no iota of doubt that Delta Central is in safe and is in able hands.
‘‘We are proud to be associated with Mr. President elect, you and other APC candidates who emerged victorious in last Saturday’s election.’’
The fmr Uvwie APC House of Assembly Candidate also commended the people of Delta Central for staying true to the goal of electing one of their own, describing them as the heroes and heroines of the struggle.
According to him, “And to the electorate, you are the real heroes and heroines and thanking Nigeria’s for voting en-mass for Tinubu as President,’’ he said, while tasking them to remain resolute in ensuring victory for their candidates in the gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections scheduled for March 11 across the country.
