Mr. Emmanuel said that the fact that the past administration in the state intervened in some federal projects and the government had not refunded would not deter him from taking up the interest of the people.
He said that despite being from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the President, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been welcoming all of them as the father of the nation.
