“The informed ones are aware of three things that only God has the knowledge thereof; when to die, where to die and the cause of death.
“Human beings must reflect on these three things. However, nowadays, people don’t think about death much more than about wealth; the worldly pursuits.
“Whenever you are shouldered with whatever the leadership responsibility, you should administer justice and be truthful to be able to have successful tenure.
“A leader is a heap of debris, it is said, subjected to criticisms, whether or not they are constructive; patience’ remains the watchword.

His joy and sorrow in this world are already written. People are simply ignoring this knowledge either consciously or unconsciously.
“At this juncture, my call therefore, is for the entire people of Adamawa to appreciate the beauty in our diversity, to collectively follow the path of unity by joining hands and might to give our God’s given governor maximum cooperation to be able to accomplish the promises he has made.
“The governor isn’t an Angel to be infallible. However, he’s a man of peace, patience and truth to trust. Let’s bury the hatchet, push away grudges and google for and unity in diversity, to be able to attain peace, progress and development.
“Whatever wrong it is observed, it is obvious that when forwarded to him, the governor can make amends; as a grade II teacher; not the indomie generation type, I can tell a good, honest and promising person at a glance.
“We have nothing to say to him other than to remain grateful. We should have confidence in him and help him with concrete advice to be able to achieve progress and development in Adamawa state,”
