The event took the form of consensus for the offices of the Govenor, State House of Assembly, House of Representatives and the Senate which where all reconfirmed via votting by delegates and candidates for the different offices.

The event, which was free of acrimonies demonstrates a unique attitude by Nigerian politicians who often resort to violence when they loose in elections. By this success, the ADC, as  a Party has proved people wrong, people who think  that all elections are violent-pron.

Highlighting a major area he would pay attention to, he listed insecurity as the most disturbing cancer requring an expert to treat it.

He assured that as one conversant with security management issues; one that Nigeria has invested so much in with three decades of public service experience, he remains the best for Nasarawa State now. 

Hitherto, Alhaji Tijani- the State Party Chairman- urged the candidates that getting the Party ticket is not the same with winnind the election. consequently, he enjoined all to work  like as a team to wrest power from the APC. 

Observing similarly, the State Secretary of the Party,  Hon Abimiku Sunday Kukumah, also a legislative candidate  noted that, of all the Parties angling for governorship election in the State, the ADC candidate remains the most outstanding and one to beat. He therefore sees the Party  forming the next government in Nasarawa State as long as Party members work in a team-like manner to achieve this goal.
