…Whereas it appeareth that the colonel has untangled the Web, but Corruption is still the enemy of development, and of good governance. It must be got rid of. Both the government and the people at large must come together to achieve this unfinished national objective.

I consider you amongst the few surviving professionals who deliver “regardless and with neither Fear nor favor” Wish you the best of luck in your next assignment Afande.
