On his part, Awomefia of Agave State, Togbe Xedihor Hlitabo IV, charged the council to discharge their duties in a transparent manner for the development of the Agave State and its citizens.

He stated that communal unrest was an obstacle to development and for that matter Agave could not afford to sacrifice development for chieftaincy disputes.
