Speaking, Mr. Obi, urged Idu to use his position and God-given wealth for the good of the people and do according to his pledge in the church not to serve other gods but the living God.

Contributing, Senator Umeh expressed satisfaction with the thanksgiving adding that Hon. Idu should abide by his promise to God that he will not have any other god except the Living God.

"Idu has given testimony in the church of what God did to him, saved him when he was sick and also gave him victory. So he should do as he pledged not to have another god," he advised.

Also, the member representing Onitsha North 1, in the state House of Assembly, Hon. Justice Azuka, described Idu as a great man, and man of the people whom God has blessed.

Speaking, Hon. Ezenwankwo said Idu is a friend of over 35 years and prayed God to prolong his days to enable him accomplish his good work for his people.

"He is a friend and I know him over 35 years when he was a counselor working with Hon. Chuks Anah, the then chairman of Onitsha local Government Area. By the special grace of God he will grow from strength to strengthen," he stated.

In his response, Idu commended all that were present even as he paid glowing tribute to the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, for being physically present despite his tight schedules.
