His said, “I call on you to cooperate with your consultants and see yourselves as opportuned to contribute your quota to the development of the state which is in dare need of development.

“I had already signed about four hundred CofOs in three months, I have spent in the office. I have also directed that CofOs for people of the state who are legal owners of lands be checked so as to allow the said landowners access facilities from different institutions and at the end engage in other businesses.”
