“We are all one, if there’s any glitches between us, we should be able to amend and scold eachother.

“I asked the former chairman to write some names but he refused to inform the leaders before doing so. He did it on his own accord and when I challenged him, he disrespected me and told me to do my worse.

“I informed the leaders and they said he must serve punishment for a temporary time.

“We will continue to progress in the good work in ward 11 and other wards for the benefit of Ekiti State.”
