“Anyhow, has the governor advised us that he want second time period? What has the Governor carried out for us in Owan west?, that our honourable members we voted are dwelling because of the governor’s perspective to have all of it. Or will Frank Ilaboya inform us if he was sworn in as council chairman within the midnight?.
