“You know that I don’t know if I am an accidental politician, because I am supposed not to be a politician.
“If you plot a curve from introvert to extrovert and start from zero as the most introvert person and 100 as the most extrovert person, and you plot that continuum, I will be between 35 and 45 on the introvert side. So, I am an introvert.
“An introvert is supposed not to be involved in politics, because politics involves much talking and you always want to show your presence. But somehow, God has a way of solving problems.”
