He assured his audience that gathered to welcome him of his unwavering dedication to their cause, pledging to uphold the values of integrity, accessibility and inclusivity in whatever he will do in the state.

He emphasised the importance of unity and collective action in realizing their shared dreams for a brighter future and a prosperous the state.
