"I think Pak Gub is not new to each other. I have known each other for a long time. So I don't think it's too difficult to realize. Moreover, there is a female figure. So we are complete," said Danny Pomanto.

After having a dialogue, Nurdin Abdullah invited DP-Fatma to inspect several renovated rooms in the office located on Jalan Urip Sumiharjo, Makassar. They toured the governor's office and the service room of existing government agencies such as the KPK. As well as a hotel standard rest room (toilet).

Danny Pomanto said the building concept in the South Sulawesi governor's office could also be applied at the Makassar City Hall with the aim of providing comfortable services for guests and the community.

"So that everything can be matched during the trip, both of us are on duty. I think it is like that, meaning that the governor explained about the governor's office. I consider it an order to the mayor to improve himself and improve the space as well," said Danny Pomanto.

Meanwhile, the deputy mayor of Makassar elected Fatmawati Rusdi appreciated the direction from the Governor, "We need direction from the Governor, we need direction from the Province," he said.

Nurdin Abdullah said Danny Pomanto had contributed a lot in South Sulawesi, designing development in South Sulawesi and other districts / cities.

Nurdin said that the Provincial and Municipal Governments will build a strong team work to continue to accelerate development in Makassar City.

This initial meeting is a sign of good collaboration going forward. As well as the right moment to meet before the inauguration.
