This tremendous kindness alone; is a complete win diplomatically and politically.
The youth has known know you as a God-fearing human being who respected the lives of all human kinds. Whether black or white you value them and treats them with fair justice and quality. We joyfully welcome the right decision. However, it’s not the first time for you to order the release of the captives captured or landed in our areas, you have released several others; be it nationals or foreigners and the world knows it.
The youth are happy with these scenarios and it’s proven your characters as a leader and not a ruler. The Youth, are happy with you and your leadership is inspiring the youth. Congratulations.
