The issue of EMOWAA is strange to us, that was not what I discussed with Mr Governor right from the beginning, what I discussed with him was the Benin Royal Museum. If we are together now, I will remind him, I will ask him, what did we discuss that time, was it EMOWAA, was it any Trust, no, he cannot say he discussed that with me. We don’t know EMOWAA, we cannot deal with EMOWAA. It is the Benin Royal Museum.”
