“And I am confident that this ”Nkunim” Budget will ensure that we boldly walk on a sustainable path toward creating decent jobs and wealth for our people. For with national dedication, the Lord will continue to give us treasures of dark places and hidden riches in secret places.
“Mr. Speaker, I present to you the “NKUNIM” Budget. A people with a manifest destiny for greatness. We are resilient and we shall prevail, because the Battleis still the Lords,” he said in parliament.
