Speaking at the conference, Prof. Tosan Harriman who represented High Chief Oweizide stressed that the Federal Government is largely misinformed on the positive leadership skills imbued in Tompolo, adding that Tompolo has contributed more in the mediation efforts and the viability of the economic mainstay of the nation than all the Presidential Economic Team put together.
