He asked political office holders not to pay lip service to the issue of good governance, pointing out that any opportunity entrusted in them by the electorate should be utilised for the benefit of humanity.
According to him, politicians should reflect on quality of service delivery to the populace, as they will be called to give account of their stewardship by both the citizenry and God.
“Leaders should not take good governance for granted as each opportunity entails selfless service to the citizenry,” he said, adding that anybody who failed to excercise caution in the performance of his duty would be doomed for behaving in a manner that portrayed him/her as serving himself.
He vowed to remain focused and committed in his efforts by helping in the deliverance of projects that would impact positively on the people.
