“I see a large number of ladies and gentlemen in the press world. That is very encouraging because I too being a veteran journalist I know what it takes to run a newspaper/magazine.

“Any act of writing is in the placement of thought. For people to be involved in the act of writing it involves record keeping. Naturally it’s a sense of direction.

“The journey of journalism involves entertainment, education, and publicity. These are critical aspect of human generally. I’d like to welcome you people and encourage you to work hard.

“Your job may not be recognized too early/easily for now, particularly when we are in an environment where everyone is looking for money, but when you get involved in reading and writing, you are creating knowledge bank, made from time to time you can fall back to it. You lift information instrument that can lead to a greater tomorrow.

“I welcome this development. People who are conscious of what is involved in the preservation of culture, preservation of knowledge and promotion of knowledge. It shows that they are people who are conscious of what it takes to avoid crime, because as soon as it goes into record it continues to be managed and it produces itself. So it creates a level of consciousness.

“I thank you to be involved in this exercise and I pray that God will continue to give you the wherewithal.”

“The journey of journalism involves entertainment, education, and publicity. These are critical aspect of human general hood. I’d like to welcome you people and encourage you to work hard.

The Monarch who promised to do justice to the content of GbaramatuVoice letter and invitation, noted that Tompolo has gone to the world of tactical revolution, to improve a lot of others who represent those who cannot represent themselves.

“I will not forget to appreciate Tompolo. I will not fail to appreciate his person. If everybody is involved in the process of saving ones head alone the system will suffer.

“Here is a young man, he has brought enough economic strength to make himself comfortable, but he has gone into the world of tactical revolution, this tactical revolution is to improve a lot of others who represent those who cannot represent themselves.

“To speak when others have decided to keep mute and to take necessary punishment and the pains of others. People like that are not easy to come by, because you just find people who want to be happy, who want to dress all out to the gallery, who want to be everywhere enjoying the good things of life. Plus such persons are somewhere serving as watchdog for the masses.

“So I appreciate Tompolo’s effort and I pray that God will reward him at the appropriate time.

“Those of you (GbaramatuVoice) who are the forerunners of truth, justice, people’s welfare, I also pray that God will meet you at your point of need. Thank you very much for coming.” He added.
