“I’m not here to campaign because you know very well that Daddy G.O. will not allow his altar to be used for campaign.

“I am here to thank you for your prayers for this country. Everyone passes through challenges. The whole world is passing through the challenge of extremism. Unfortunately, we are having our share of the challenge.

“But we are working harder and with our collaboration with other neighbouring countries, we will soon smile as a country.

“As we are going for the general elections, I request you to devote time to pray for peace in our land. Pray for the elections. The Almighty God knows the best for the country and His Will will come to pass. With your prayers, we will conquer.”
