He reasoned that with the level of aggressive Development projects and programmes put in place across all sectors by Ayade, it would have taken God himself to stop Ayade’s reelection, but that God would not have stopped it because He is Happy with the performances of the governor as his governance touches the People’s lives in a positive way.
