‘Agbor Kingdom never oppressed any kingdom and I will not force people to do anything in my time; I try to live by example’.
‘I don’t know how any leader can be comfortable living in luxury while their people are suffering. I can’t understand it at all; it has not been the best experience for me because as long as Nigerians are suffering, I’m suffering as well’.
‘It has been extremely frustrating. This is an amazing country that has abundant mineral resources God has blessed us with, but we are not making use of what we have. I find that very unfortunate, I’m not one of those people who feel very comfortable when there are people around that are not doing fine. So, it has always been a problem for me over the last 19 years, seeing that the country is actually going backwards. We are not actually where we should be’ – Benjamin Ikenchuku Keagborekuzi I.
