“May God bless them. Anybody who cursed them, may the curse return to the person – Holy Ghost power, Holy Ghost power, Holy Ghost power.
“Senator Laah is from Southern Kaduna, we know his origin, we respect him and we are happy with him. Anybody who is not happy with you, should be patient because that is the will of God.”

“Yesterday (on Saturday) in Birnin Gwari our people were killed. Every week, our people are being killed and the government keeps on promising to ensure security, which type of security?
“We will not curse them, but we pray to God,” he added.
