“Having been directed by God, we are also here to tell you that the mountains were brought down, and they who must be at the summit will climb to it. I’m to also tell you that He has gone forth and His mighty hand has already established you. 

“So, we did not come to do anything else other than to encourage you and show you the right path to follow in your leadership of Bayelsa state.”
