He revealed some of the plans and steps the governor had taken in the area of security, education, environmental sanitation, community peace and infrastructural development, especially roads.

Nwabunwanne explained how a preliminary investigation his office conducted revealed that some monarchs deliberately left their various communities for months, even as he urged the monarchs to always be very close to their communities as this, according to him, would keep them informed of all the happenings in their communities and enable them to proffer immediate solutions to same with ease.

Earlier in their brief, the Traditional Rulers Council, through their chairman, H.R.H. Igwe Bennett Emeka, appreciated the governor of Anambra State for the appointment of the commissioner whom they described as capable of delivering the demands of the office and who had made some positive changes within few months in the office.

They listed security issues, lack of teachers and truancy among few teachers in primary and secondary schools as challenges confronting the zone which they would like the governor to look into.

The royal fathers demanded that the state government should always carry them along while executing projects in their various communities.
