He said, he and members of his team were trusting in God that they would deliver through hard work and sound vision.

“Let me assure you all that this administration is committed to bequeathing to this nation, a new orientation in leadership that will be service-driven and committed to the realisation of its promises to the electorates. “We are however not under any illusions that this task is an easy one.

“But we have put our trust in God knowing that with hard work and sound vision, we will triumph,” he was quoted to have said.
