The Commissioner in the statement urged the residents of the ancient town to learn to be patient and believe in an administration that has not let them down in five years, stressing that insinuations and mischievous innuendos that dogged the process leading to the installation of the new monarch did not deter the Governor from toeing the path of justice and fairness
