Kebbi State Governor, Nasir Idris, has assured the people of the state that he would never disappoint them in the discharge of his responsibility as the governor.

The media aide to the governor, Ahmed Idris, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, on Friday.

Idris quoted his principal as saying this while addressing a  crowd that converged at the Government House to congratulate him on his victory at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, on Friday.

The governor assured the people of his readiness to deliver more dividends of democracy to the electorate through the execution of meaningful developmental projects that would directly benefit their lives, especially the common man.

He observed that the Appeal Court’s judgment testified that the judicial arm of government was doing its work as an independent entity, as it was fair to all manner of people irrespective of tribal, political or religious affiliation.

While commending the judiciary for doing what he described as a thorough and good job, Idris urged them to sustain the tempo for the good of the nation’s democracy and the country at large.

“This judgment has shown that the mandate of the Kebbi people is given to them. This is an indication that Kebbi people have a good mind towards him and that’s why Almighty God is on their side.

“I want to use this medium to appreciate the party leaders, party loyalists, legislators, members of the executive arm, youth and women groups, associations and all other people of Kebbi for rallying around to ensure my victory at all levels.

“By the grace of God Almighty, this will be the beginning of a new dawn in Kebbi. Be rest assured that you will enjoy more dividends of democracy than before and Insha Allah, nobody will regret voting me to become the governor,” he assured.

Idris extended a hand of fellowship to the opposition parties, especially the Peoples Democratic Party, saying: “You should come and join hands with the present APC administration in the state so that together we can build a greater and vibrant Kebbi.”
