The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, congratulated the former Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, on his turbanning as the Jakandan Sokoto by His Eminence, Sultan Muhammed Abubakar Sa’ad, the Sultan of Sokoto.
This was contained in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan
National Publicity Secretary.
“The party described the turbanning of Alhaji Idris as Jakandan of Sokoto as well-deserving given his exceptional patriotism and sacrificial contributions towards the unity, stability and economy of our nation as a political leader as well as an entrepreneur in critical sectors of our national economy.
“Alhaji Abubakar Idris stands out as a detribalised Nigerian and one of the leading lights in the collective pursuit of democratic tenets of inclusiveness, rule of law, equality, transparency, mutual respect and good governance at all levels of national participation.
“As the governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Idris remains unmatched with his unprecedent massive infrastructural development as well as empowerment of citizens in every sphere of life.” The statement said
According to the statement,
“Furthermore, Alhaji Idris remains a pillar and stabilizing force for our great party, the PDP at the national, north central and state (Kogi) levels. He has remained exceptionally humble, accessible and loyal to the cause of our party despite his attainments.
“The PDP family therefore felicitates with Alhaji Idris for this honour and pray that God will continue to bless him with more wisdom and strength as he serves our nation and humanity at large.”
