Whether you are my friend or anything when there is need for fight,we fight. That's what he is doing.

"One thing about him is that he is very honest to me. Why we have relative peace we have,Ikwo used to be turbulent during the past regime,but,we are having it much better right now.
 "I want you to give him support,there is nothing greater than peace.

"And I must thank you people,Ikwo leaders,very exceptional people.
You know we would have had the worst crises in Ebonyi state. Ikwo versus Izzi,the same people,but for the ingenuity,sincerity and commitment of the leaders of Ikwo,I know somebody like Deputy governor never slept until the matter was resolved,and so with all of you and the chairman. They demonstrated exceptional leadership during that time.

"If you have this kind of leadership at Effium axis,we would not have the type of crises,we have there.
So I want to commend you,I will continue to remember it and I will continue to commend you over that.

"At our trial time in 2015,you showed exceptional commitment and leadership.
