Anyim in his address expressed his desire to reposition the country to catch up with the future we will be proud of if given the opportunity.
” In the next few years, the type of employment we will be talking about will not be the type we are talking right now. And sir, we need to reposition this country to catch up with the future so that we can preserve the future for our children. That is what I stand for, that is what I want to bring on the table and that’s why I have come …”
He further assured the Emir that we are into a new season.
” We are in to a new season, a season that will set out a new future for the younger generation, a season that will refocus Nigeria, a season that will reunite Nigeria, a season we must not make mistake about, a season we must bring everybody together to have a sense of nationhood. We have no other country than this country”.

Furthermore, Anyim, amidst immense joy, thanked me Royal father for his kind words particularly the royal blessings which were pronounced upon him and his delegation.
“His response to my brief address were words that came from the heart which he concluded with a touch of a Royal blessing.
“I cannot thank His Royal Highness enough for the inspiration of a greater Nigeria I drew from his speech today. Let me again assure His Royal Highness and all well meaning Nigerans that together we shall make Nigeria great again.
“Long live Nigeria”, he added.
The Royal father in his remarks assured Anyim of his Royal partnership.
” I want to assure you that I will not be part of the people that will discuss those issues that will not matter. We shall educate our people. I wish you well in your endeavors”.
