The Eni’Ofua’Fo which implies the White Elephant. The white elephant is rare, very scare to come about it. So, the people has selected a very rare representative to represent them. Our representation is world class, we don’t undermine anybody. I am elected to duty, my advocacy is to protect the overall interest of Ethiope East that I am doing in the barest form.
