Freddie Blay

"All our expectations may not have been met yet but let’s remain hopeful in the great leader we fought to serve. Despite the many challenges, let’s rise above them all and serve diligently to the admiration of all. Let’s also take consolation in the fact that, we have a listening and working government who has the spirit of Servitude and therefore put the citizenry first."
