It was quite interesting to hear what he has to say with regards to lessons he has learnt as President over the Past months. As always I am really passionate about Media and fostering social development so squeezed that into some of the things we talked about. Really thankful for this opportunity and I really appreciate how sincere and accommodating he was,a very interesting person.
