“It is not therefore the amount of money,  hate speech, fake news or political thuggery that would make contestants emerge victorious during the elections,” he said.

He further called on all and sundry  to re-dedicate themselves to the country, be patriotic and intensify prayers to God to shower His mercy and blessings so as to continue to live in peace with one another.
