  1. But we said we are in the democracy era, don’t we have freedom any more? Can’t we visit anyone we like. This is uncalled for and I implore the elders of the state to call him to order.

  2. Are we in anarchy era? Is it now mandatory for our Royal fathers to seek for permission before visiting anyone or going out of the town. O ga oooo

  3. Well I do not know much about how traditional leaders and government work
    It is like the traditional leaders are accountable to the government or what
    Is he saying that they do have freedom of association and movement or what
    Let them settle because all we want is peace..o

  4. There must be more to this than proper consultation and approval. This shows the level our traditional rulers have been relegated in this system.
