Moreover, the people of Cirebon are known to be very religious, of course the leaders must also have religious values," he ordered.

Furthermore, Emil said that Cirebon must rise up professionally. For this reason, Emil requested that Acting. Cirebon Regent and Cirebon District Government employees diligently innovate and have new ideas. "Don't be business as usual, not just ordinary business. Cirebon is too special to be mediocre.
