My team and I are grateful to every delegate who participated in the Elections. Also grateful to my co-contestants who gave me a great challenge to work harder to grab the mandate.
I urge all The Youth, Women and Men in my constituency to give my humble self their support to fight for the Change we all Desire in the 2016 Elections.
