The president, who noted the seeming lack of attention for the grassroots where he observed votes come from, charged his guests to reach out to governors on the local government’s administration in the country to be sympathetic and urgently attend to the needs of the local people.

The statement reads in part:

“We are running a constitutional democracy. I will appeal to you to summon the Governors. I am doing my very best to enhance the revenue base of the country. They must equally be sympathetic and they must urgently consider the needs of the local people.”
