It was also intended to identify with their concerns and expectations, all of which he satisfactorily addressed.
The different groups of artisans took turns to heap praises on the person of Ambode and the party APC, while also urging him to ensure that the government engages their expertise(s) much more, as that is the only way they can contribute their quota in the development of the state.
