Mahmud said,” During your days as governor you had always invited us to the Governor’s  lodge, Amawbia and celebrated  with us  during Muslim festivities. You rebuilt this mosque( Onitsha Central mosque). You also sponsored many of us to Mecca.

“OBIdient movement is a moving nobody can stop it .We supported you in the last election . We know your pedigree.  We knew the outcome of 2023 election; you were the people’s choice.

“God will deliver you and this project of a new Nigeria. What you did in Anambra, we are sure  you can replicate them in Nigeria.
