Mr Akinterinwa, who appreciated the donor agencies and other development partners, appealed to the visitors to help the state convey some of the challenges to them so that they will understand why some of the projects were delayed. 

He however, appealed to all the coordinators of all the benefiting agencies in the State to cooperate with the team so that the objective of their visit would be achieved.
