“We have come this far as a nation because of the people’s resilience and ingenuity. Despite the challenges facing us, I believe strongly that we will succeed as a people. All we need to do is to keep praying for those in authority while leaders must also ensure that the interest of the people is paramount in all they do.

“Happy Independence Day”, he concluded.
