“To have been selected to serve in this exalted position out of 200 million Nigerians, It is a challenge to serve inline with the oath I have taken today.
“I assure Nigerians I will do my best, I will not disappoint the president, I will not disappoint this country and I will not disappoint my party.
“I believe Nigerians will find fulfilment in my reinksponsibilities as I discharge that in their own interest. It is an honour to serve the country and I am strongly persuaded that guided by Almighty God, I will do my best and Nigerians will really reap the dividends of democracy”.
