“Before I entered the governorship race, I have consulted widely, and the contest is beyond me now to withdraw midway, and I want to assure my party leaders, supporters, and friends that I am the Aspirant to beat in this race and the chosen one in God’s Grace France Divinely.

“I wish to let you all know that I will not let you down, and I seriously believe that it is God that gives power and in him alone I trust, just as I had earlier informed the screening committee.”
