He said the people of the State are grateful to the President for what he has done so far for the People of the State.
Concluding, Mr. Etta welcomed the new members and expressed high hopes that the party will live up to expectation.
In separate brief speeches, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, Senator Bassey Otu and Prince Jedy-Agba on behalf of their senatorial districts, pledged to work fervently for the party in ensuring that in subsequent elections they will over power PDP.
