“The party interest is more paramount than parochial and self-centered agitations from a microscopic few.
“The facts are indubitably too plain to be contested Your Excellency, that our great party was largely fractious and tottering at its perilous precipice and brinks, when both destiny and history beckoned on you to provide durable leadership for us all.

The legislator said the inspiring leadership style and consultative approach of the chairman in addition to the
“coruscating humility, visceral connectivity with the rank and file of the party, and disciplined interpersonal skills has commended itself to all and sundry.”
