“We will not forget anybody and we will not forget you in view of the role you have played. What you have done to ensure our success was so glaring and nobody can dispute it because Zabarmawa are not lazy people.
“Some of you left their businesses and jobs and came back home for the election and even after the first election that was declared inconclusive, some of you didn’t go back until when the inconclusive was concluded.”
While appreciating all the groups for the visit, Idris urged them not to hesitate to come forward with useful advice and suggestions that would move the state forward.
