According to him, "The new administration in place must take bold and courageous decisions that should be in the interest of our country. And there are five issues that he should be serious about, by serious, I mean he should prioritise.
"The first is about our national unity. There is an urgent need to ensure that this country is reinforced, is restrengthen, because the spirit of our people is very low at this very time.
"Secondly, this government must take seriously the issue of national security. The next is the economy of this country.
