The colloquiuim had in attendance politicians of repute from the state who all agreed that this is the way to go if we must overcome the gap in solution-driven leadership our dear state and Nation needs.
Political juggernauts from Adamawa took turns to praise Wafari Theman for raising the bar in Governorship aspiration of the state as well as political discuss.
