A statement jointly signed by Dr Kenneth Olise and Comrade Fidelis Egugbo, Chairman and Secretary, Maris Trust Council, MTC, respectively, which was made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Asaba, stated that the acceptance of those who have participated actively at the Maris Annual Public Service lecture series was a credence to the fact that those who painstakingly chose such persons are in tune with realities.

“While we thank the electorate for having implicit confidence in the abilities of Sir Monday Onyeme, we urge him to continue with his good works of charity and strong belief in rendering service to humanity.
