” I want to thank almighty God even when I know that this is coming at a time that our celebration is greatly challenged by some workmanships of our opponents and those who believe the celebration has actually grown into national envy.
” I want to guarantee the leadership of the party and indeed the entire membership in the nation that we will go and do justice to this task and we will not dissatisfy all affordable expectations,” he stated.
