Also speaking, leader of the party in Bekwarra LGA, Hon. Tim Ekawo said, “we should not make a joke with very serious matter.
“Your Excellency, the first thing is that you have made a very important statement by walking away from the usual noise accompanied with campaigns but segmenting your into different groups including, party Excos, women, youths, elders and so on. That for me is very important. It tells alot about your energy, mental prowess etc.
“ While you were talking, you tried as much as possible not to be arrogant in saying so much about what you have achieved, but we know your capability.
“your Excellency when you become governor, please secure the future of these people, that is what I desire from you. Thank you”
