    Come tomorrow and MR is going to create history. We are going to have the largest cabinet in the world. Guiness take note. All the best Sir and pls have a cabinet who will work for the good of the masses instead of filling their pockets which has been happening throughout of late. No need to toil to become a specialist in any field. Politricks is the easiest route to a fortune. Good luck Sir for the next 6 years and more............
