The entourage moves to meet with the community head, elders and youths in the locality and they are given a warm welcome.
Spokesperson for the community, Clifford Igbineweka expresses the gratitude of the indigenes as Obaseki assures of his administration’s commitment to promoting development through road infrastructure.
