You will all agree with me on this, in view of the myriads of challenges and toothaches bedeviling the union in recent history. Conscious of our challenging circumstances and the many bitter experiences we have had as a Union, I want to state that the task ahead us, every one of us, is no mean task. It is not going to be a walk in the park. But it is possible to reposition SSANU; rebuild friendship; forge new alliances; inject patriotism, restore and shore up confidence among the ranks of SSANU membership. Yes, it is possible to start a new beginning.”
He further said ” The past few months have witnessed an intense but peaceful effort on the part of all contestants to emerge victorious. But today, I declare that we are all victorious; SSANU is victorious. The future of SSANU is assured and bright by the grace of God.
As I congratulate us on this feat, please be assured that the days ahead of us shall be momentous. In the coming days, the new NAC will unfold a road map that will guide our short, medium, and long term projections. We will no longer walk in darkness. The commencement of the great and golden era of SSANU is now”
