“That intention was to have a first-hand feel of the suffering of our people with the hope to seeking prospective measures to addressing same if given the mandate”.
“Because my campaign was issue-based, I received tremendous support from all strata of persons and party leaders including you my elders sitting here which has remained unquantifiable. I must live to appreciate your contribution to projecting my noble political aspiration”.
“However, Heaven who crown kings decided on the day of our primaries that the baton should fall on my elder brother, Governor Samuel Ortom and I have since congratulated him to that effect”.
