January 12, 2016 (SSB)  —  You are now a Governor of one battlefield—Jonglei State—but Phillip Aguer Panyang, I hope you are ready to head to another battlefield. With every passing day, you are closer to going outside of the military to make decisions associated with complex issues. With that in mind, we the citizens are very hopeful that you represent a positive, fresh start with a new position that you have just filled. I hope you brought sound plans with you, because they are desperately needed in the newly established Jonglei State.

Like everyone else, I know you have already familiarized yourself with much of the chaos in the state. And while I am joyous because I was one of many who wanted you to be the Governor, it is too soon to celebrate anything. In fact, we would rather celebrate your future success as Governor of Jonglei.
