I have maintained a position that elections must be free and fair and people have the right to make their choices and vote their conscience.

I am happy they understood the message and did just that.

Power is a public trust that belongs to the people. Power is not by strength or wisdom but by Providence.

Elected persons must be fair and just. This is the legacy I want to leave behind. A leader must be fair and just. All leaders should strive to do that.
