He said, “I am happy because I love you. I am happy because I believe that the local government is the closest government to the ordinary person in the street.

“I have seen women in Nigeria struggling for recognition and I see misrepresentation of women in the society and the failure to give women responsibility is why things are going the way it is in this country.

“This country has neglected the women and youths. Imagine the IPOB, they are not people of my age. It is time to engage the youths of this country.

“Let me say this, we must go back to agriculture. And there is no system more qualified to talk about agriculture if not the local government system. I want this conference to include agriculture in their agenda.” Read also: Court refuses to transfer Fani-Kayode’s alleged fraud case to Abuja
