“This whistle-stop tour is designed for me to consult before a declaration is made. You can’t put the cart before the horse. I needed to sit and look into the eyes of leaders and have them look into mine, so we can tell each other the truth. A declaration that comes after this kind of a process, will stand the test of time.
“We have discussed all issues under the sun, from internal issues within the local government, my father the King, how we will build a formidable front for our 2023, the leader Rotimi Amaechi, our commitment to his presidency and of course, my ambition. I’m encouraged on all fronts. They have all spoken very very well.”
