He challenged the officials to re-energize and push their Governors to meet in their summit so that the economic bloc is pushed to the next level by ensuring that their MCA’s have been brought on board to ensure that they buy their idea.
This the DG said that will harmonize the operations of NOREB, citing that its success is for the good of the residents.
