The Political ICON, Efianya stated that the gratitude, appreciation and celebration done to him is a welcome development as the officials came with gifts, thanksgiving and fully loaded baskets  and prayers like what happened in the book of Kings when the Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon in the book of First Kings.

In his words: "One is that God will bless them. God will bless their motivations. My colleagues should emulate the terrain that I have passed. God will bless the future of this officials.
