I think it is part of my responsibility to let the president know from time to time how things are being done and how we are faring. We discussed some issues bothering on security.” “Not really a request, but feedback. At times, feedback could be even very effective than request. Because feedback is necessary for further actions and the rest of things you want to do.”
“We are all running one project which is project Nigeria adding that if we are running project Nigeria, all hands must be a deck to move the country to the level we all expect and dream of and that is the essence of the whole thing,” the governor added.

Spare me that today, but rather than calling it restiveness, I will say everything we discussed is about the wellbeing of Nigerians,” Emmanuel concluded.
