area. Mr. Agholor, one of the landlords in the area said he was particularly
happy for the grading of Aziken

seeing now. In the past it was not like this. You are making a history that
will be difficult to erase. The people are in support of you and we are all
praying for you,? he said. He urged the Chairman not to relent in his effort
towards taking the local government to greater heights.

representatives, said that the group is highly impressed by the level of work
that is going on in the local government area. He said that King Solomon asked
God to give him wisdom to enable him lead the children of Israel.
However, because he did not ask for riches, God gave Solomon, not only wisdom,
but riches that surpassed those of other kings everywhere. He stated that God
has given the Chairman the wisdom, and will continue to enable him to carry the
local government along. He promised to always pray for the Chairman and his
executives for God to guide and guard them throughout their tenure in office.

he has come to serve the people that placed him in that position, and that his
promise is to do his best in the local government. ?I am here for a common
interest. I will do my best to make this
place a better place for everyone to get a fair deal. I am still coming to
visit the area, and by next year, with government support, some of the projects
in that area will be carried out, ? he promised the group. He also revealed
that a bulldozer would be delivered to the local government that very day. This
he said, will enable the local government to do most of the work in the area.
He thanked the community representatives for visiting the secretariat and
promised to contribute his quota towards the development of their area.
High point of the visit was the presentation of a gift to the
local government boss by the group. Those present at the occasion also include
Mr. Philip Kemelie, Alhaji Amori Abdulaziz, Mr. Agholor Ndudi, Mr. C.A.
