According to him, though the Migili pressure group has a right to their opinions, their actions shows, “they acted as if they are not informed about the governor’s extraordinary show of concern for the people of the state.”
“Besides, on that day Agyaragu was attacked, the governor was in Abuja. The next thing he did was to head back to Lafia, after he approved a visit by his deputy and cabinet members.
He personally supervised the mobilization of security personnel to the troubled spot, using phones. And displaced persons’’ he said
Agassi also explained that apart from the  visits, Almakura directed that I made visits, where we gave reliefs in terms of materials and cash. Pleases, such a governor deserves commendation, not condemnation from our youths, he added
