According to the First Class monarch, “I am not trying to gain anything from these visits but to help our great country. We want peace, unity and be a fruitful country.
“We must get back to the good times of this country. I will also try to get to the governors too.

“Let me use this opportunity to commend and thank Mr. President for giving us back for the very first time a two-term CBN Governor, Godwin Emeifele, a worthy son of Agbor.
