“Having followed Prince Ghandi’s career, as a Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Washington, I can say that he is a round peg in a round hole, a man well-equipped and destined for royalty.

“I appreciate him for taking on this heavy task of bringing a new modern and enlightened dimension to the leadership of traditional institutions in the country. This is one of the ways to help build a new and egalitarian society that we all would be proud of.

Men like the new Royal father, who desire the progress of humanity and the development of society are encouraged to fully join the task of nation-building by working for the good of society, at different leadership levels. Our traditional institutions have a great contribution to make in our quest for a New Nigeria. I wish him well on his new challenges while encouraging him to continue to work for the progress of his immediate Ogbomosho community and our larger Nigerian society in general. We all must join hands to build the New Nigeria of our dreams.
