The clergy man enjoined politicians to prioritize the development of their variuos communities and immediate constituencies and the entire country above their personal ambitions.
According to him, “The well being of the masses, how the nation’s economy will grow and the citizens will be able to live happily should be your uttermost goal rather than go after your perceived political opponent because you want power” .
