September 25, 2017 (SSB) — Ladies and gentlemen, there are terms we need to use appropriately, these include, liberation and stability. What have we not lost? The power busting within refused to tell truth and had never and will never be truthful to our liberation.

We’re left implicated and sometimes deprived of our right to freedom; we go squandering our resources believing this will be the best way to keep lights on.

Therefore, when our economy slips to doom we remain also downtrodden and would never have that stability. What is our pride here, ladies and gentlemen?

All these artifices she banged and none of us would want to turn back as long the lights bouncing ahead there seem to freeze forever. As we could never sleep it was that, there were lots of beaten drums but who knows, maybe the arms of the beaters are weakened to keep the drums throbbing. They have lost pace with the stamina to shout to the brim of their voices and what a terrible silence that had

They have lost pace with the stamina to shout to the brim of their voices and what a terrible silence that had befallen them.

What are we, ladies and gentlemen? That we chose to neglect the entire public in our political, economic and diplomatic affairs. It’s crystal clear, violence to some extent pays but only when the high authority uses that advantage got from public’s disadvantage.

The quest for social democracy is finally here, ladies and gentlemen, our interest is never based on fighting for self-enrichment. We no longer wanted to dance on a slippery ground but to sit down and study with a desire to know how our country had been running on defunct theories.

We no longer reject the vivid application of comparative advantage to achieve social, political and economic liberty.

Enough, ladies and gentlemen, to the abuse of our liberties, justice, and prosperity. Are we not brave as before to always grab what belongs to the poor? Running away with poor man’s property and masquerade being litigious.

All the life paranoias ought to be slaughtered and invite peace and equality to the house and answer why we have chosen to abuse our bravery.
