On the forthcoming 2019 elections, the Chief Imam added that, ‘Jimi Benson has performed excellently well and there is no doubt that we will give him our support.

On the excellent coordination of the food distribution he said, ‘He has a very good team. I see a lot of cooperation among them and this explains why the programme is a success, even in the absence of their leader’, he said.
