He said he would fight against COVID-19 and other issues of security, sanitation, indiscipline, and fight againstCOVID- 19. He is a former Deputy Minister of the interior.
“It’s just like a Passover ceremony. And so there is no fetish about it,” he explained. “I intend, by the grace of God, to work with the chiefs,” he said.
