I believe we will win.

We promise to respect people of all creeds: those who are Christians, Muslims as well as those who have decided not to follow any religion.

My government is going to deal with all forms of corruption. White-collar corruption will be high on the list and we are going to plug all gaps that are being used by corrupt leaders (and) business people.

People who sow seeds of discord by preaching tribalism, racism and religious misunderstanding should find another place to go.

The opposition should look seriously into reasons that led them to be rejected by the people. To show our good faith in promoting the culture of opposition (politics) in this country, I am going to set up a ministry to look into government and opposition relations.

If we did that we'll go a long way towards poverty alleviation, promoting development and allowing a better life for all, for the people of both countries.

We need to conduct a public debate on this issue.

I will make sure research and development is a top priority in agricultural development.
