Banky W further stated that “They said we don’t have the money to run, we say our strength lies in our numbers, they said we don’t have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it, they said ‘what if you lose? I say what if we win”.

“So why we may not have a godfather we do have God, vision, intellectual capacity, integrity, right intentions and last but not least, a whole lot of hope. At the end of the day, Hope may be all we have, but I believe it is all we need”, he noted.
