We know that our country is going through turbulent times in our polity, management of affairs, security challenges, pandemic, unemployment, inequality, inflation and issues that are ravaging the entire world and also affecting us.

“We all need to come together. Like the preacher said on the pulpit, ‘righteousness exalts a nation’ is all about doing the right thing, not only once but doing well all the time.

“It is not about Mr. Governor. It is not about the commissioner. It is about all of us. It is about ensuring that we have good conduct and continually display fairness, equity and justice as people and as a nation.
