However, Alubeze said he is very proud of working with Angele as leader of the Burutu Legislative House while he (Angele) is chairman of the local government, stressing that the harmonious relationship the executive and legislative arm shares during the tenure is applaudalde which according to him culminated to an appreciable level of development in the Local Government.
