“I am worried. I have to accept your point there that quite a lot of things are not going right and I think being an elder statesman; I will leave it at that for now. But the principles are clear,” he said.

“The genesis is clear of what gave rise to where we are now. As I have always said, if we don’t kill tribalism, it will kill this country

“To my mind, it is now the immediate, urgent challenge of the government in its second term to frontally address these issues and these challenges and these problems because there is no question at all.

“They are not healthy for the nation and yes, they are worrisome. I find them worrisome too. But it is my hope and prayers that they will be effectively addressed.”
