In his remarks at his palace, the Asagba of Asaba, who thanked the State Gov for the recognition given him, described the VP as a wise man.

“As the VP of this great country, Nigeria, we know you as a very distinguished and eminent supporter of law, and we know you as a pastor of the Redeemed Church. Put together, we can say that with all these qualifications & experience, you are a wise man.
