“We are ready to work with you, you can as well work with us. If you like us and you call us, we will come and meet with you. If you do not, we will not come to meet you. Let it be on record that you are the first person to call us.

“I have told my people that the first person who would call us, that is the person we will work with. Money is not the first thing, if you put money ahead of us, we will not work with you again”, he said.

Also speaking, “General” Wilson Waire, from Ughelli south local government area, who corroborated his colleague, assured Gbagi of their support

“As you have called us, we will work with you. Those of us who are ex-agitators, work with people who respect us. We collaborate with our colleagues in other states. As we are going to work with you, we will call our colleagues in other states,” he asserted.

Waire, who spoke on behalf of the Urhobo ex-agitators, hinted: “We will support you to the last, tell us what to do early enough so that we will know what to do at the right time”.

You are the very first person that is calling us, we are going to do the needful.

“Believe us today that we will not disappoint you, but the only thing we are asking from you is to give us that honour. Our leaders will give the directive, we will go to our units and we will deliver, we will work to the fullest. When you take us seriously, we take you serious”, he reiterated.
