“In fact we are moving forward and making progress. Recall that I have always said that the Bible says better is the end of a thing than the beginning.
“My first tenure was very rough but I want to assure you that the remaining three years is going to be eventful and wonderful. There would be projects, there would be developments at all levels.
“And for me, the COVID-19 that came is another opportunity for us to begin to think outside the box of what we have been doing so that there would be more development, and I can assure you that by the grace of God we are going to do better than what we had in the first tenure.”
