“My slogan and priorities are to pursue anything that will promote peace, development, brotherliness, among other virtues for the town,” he said.

The monarch commended the Governor Chukwuma Soludo-led Government for its efforts and commitments to the development of the town, calling on the people of the state to give it maximum support to excel.

“From the impressive achievements the government has so far recorded from the little time he has stayed in office, I’m sure if given maximum support, he will achieve more than all his predecessors in office,” he said.

He pledged his ministry’s readiness to partner with various communities in the state to develop the state culture, just as he enjoined the locals to always live in peace and support their monarch for peace to thrive in the town.
