“I just left the palace of His Royal Highness, Edomwonyi Iduozee Ogiegbean, the Enigie of Egbaen town and the President of Enigies in the Benin Kingdom where I went to pay homage to the Enigies and present my SIMPLE agenda manifesto.”
“I delivered copies of the #POISIMPLEAGENDA and highlighted some of the measures designed to tackle insecurity, particularly the rising cases of kidnapping, through careful investments and partnership with community heads and traditional rulers for crucial local intelligence.”
“I promised to replace the elitist and detached approach of the present government with a functional and true government of the people, by the people, and for the people with felt policies and achievements at the grassroots.”
“I am grateful to the Enigies for their prayers, blessings, and warm reception.”
