“I pray that God grants them the fortitude they need at this difficult time.

“I would Like to let everyone know that nation-building is a collective task which involves the genuine efforts of all patriotic citizens whether old or young.

“Our country cannot afford to lose the lives of our youth who we look up to take over leadership and continue our nation’s journey to greatness.

‘’As leaders, we must also understand that a nation can never win a battle against its own people.

“Thus, I totally condemn the use of deadly force against citizens because this only worsens tense situations.

“We must therefore move away from battlegrounds to middle grounds in our individual and national life.
This, I believe, show like cases the essence of democracy.
