He said he will use his experience as former Speaker of the House of Assembly, Governor and lawyer amongst others to ensure that he attracts development to the Zone and the entire State.

Lalong who also thanked the people for purchasing the form for him to contest, urged the members to remain steadfast ahead of the general elections where the party is hopeful of winning not only the Senate seat, but all other offices to be contested.
