"Meanwhile, we continue to trust God as we appreciate our teeming supporters and the good people of Enugu State for the enormous goodwill they have ceaselessly invested in the actualisation of the “Pathway to a New Enugu State”.

"We urge them to remain peaceful and be assured that we will keep them abreast of our decision on the way forward."
