“He has come with a great sense of inclusiveness. And Nigerians are having a sense of belonging in this government and I tell you that his pronouncements so far and his body language have increased the confidence of Nigerians in Nigeria and we believe that, given the chance, he will do a lot more and we are praying that the Lord will strengthen his hand, to be able to do more and turn around the fortunes of this country.”

“So, we ask Nigerians who are watching and those people who seem to have lost hope, not to lose hope, but to have patience and persevere,. Though it is night, we know that a new dawn is just in the horizon.”
