“A lot of you what you see on a Governor is just a siren. It is like when you see a Pastor, the easiest part of pastorate is to preach. The most difficult part you don’t see. In Governorship, what you see is just the motorcade. The most difficult part which is spiritual part you don’t get to see and we cannot explain to you what we see especially some of us that they see us as intruders
