"However I will not relent in speaking on areas where the state government is not doing well and areas where the government is doing well, I will commend them.

"I believe we are all working for the interest of the well-being of Delta people", calling on those appointed to represent the chairmen of the various opposition parties who are working tirelessly, saying "the appointment given to you is not to enrich yourself, it is for the well-being of all the parties and to carry along all the political parties in activities of the government".
