I'll ensure to share my lecture online for readers to go through for record, intellectual and reference purposes. I wish to sympathise with our brothers and sisters, families who are currently displaced in the state following the flooding that recently hit some areas of the state. I have sent relief materials and financial support to as many as I can and will further endeavour to visit as many of the victims as possible. I'm confident that we will overcome. God bless you and have a great Sunday
