“It is very important for that gap to be bridged so that issues, experience in Nigeria recently will not reoccur. It is a lesson for every one of us and we must all work together to better the lots of the youths in this country,’’ Ogunwusi said.
Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, sympathized with monarchs, businesses, and individuals over losses during the mayhem.
