Gov. Diri, who was represented by his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Chief Collins Cocodia, said the state government and the political elite from Brass kingdom are working assiduously for the Nembe-Brass road to be completed soonest.
He commended the people of Brass Kingdom for the existing peace and predicted that the peace existing in Nembe and Brass will last.
“We shall see the completion of the road soon. The political elites from Brass and Nembe know how to play good and peaceful politics. And they are collaborating with the state and federal government for quick completion of the road.”
Corroborating the position of the state governor, the member of the Federal House of Representatives representing Sagbama/Ekeremor Federal Constituency, Hon.
