He has enthroned transparency, honesty and accountability in government affairs. He has put in place a reward system where hard work and merit has replaced mediocrity, tribalism and man know man syndrome. We now have in place a governance system where people are judged by capacity, contributions and content of their character and not where they come from. He has also ensured that governance process is simplified with everyone given a sense of belonging through political and economic inclusiveness. Our Governor has ensured that only people-oriented policies are implemented and government actions have human face. His exemplary leadership style has shown that government can indeed work depending on who is in charge. We must commend our Governor for pulling us out of the woods and for prudently managing our resources for the good of all.”
