“Come 2023, I hope to sign a covenant with Deltans. A covenant to build a strong, resilient and prosperous economy at the doorsteps of everyone that will enforce unity, through the spirits of consensus and cooperation. A state where we will see ourselves as members of one indivisible, prosperous family irrespective of our ethnic background.”
