“Our track record of integrity in public service speaks for us, always. 

“In leading the younger generation, we must instil in them utmost respect for the rule of law and constituted authorities. 

“As citizens, we should realise that no one, no matter how highly placed, should be above the laws of the land, most specifically, the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

“This, amongst other things, brings out the beauty in democracy.
