The stage you have reached is enough, go and take some rest for others to continue from where you left off”, he said to an applause at a funeral.

According to the ranking member of foreign affairs, the former president despite being a beneficiary of free secondary education is standing against same wondering what he is seeking another term to do, that has not been achieved under the current dispensation.
