On behalf of the entire members of the Arewa Online Publishers’ Forum, we write to warmly congratulate you on your election as the acting Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).
The news of your nomination, overwhelming acceptance and swearing-in as acting chairman of the PDP at the recent party’s convention did not come to us in the Forum as a surprise knowing the good qualities of leadership you possess and displayed as governor of Kaduna State for eight years, a period that was characterized by humane, fair and progressive leadership inspite of the myriad ethno-religious challenges that confronted your administration.
As media practitioners in the state, we attest to the fact that your leadership was purposeful, inclusive and unpretentiously democratic without the symptoms of dictatorship. Your legacies in the state remain unbeatable.
We have no doubts that in this current national assignment, you shall bring your wealth of experience to bear in the leadership of the PDP towards ensuring that yours being the major opposition party comes out of the woods to provide the needed constructive opposition towards enhancing the beauty of our democratic practice.
Once again, we joyfully congratulate you on your new position and pray that God Almighty will help you to succeed, as you count on our professional cooperation.
