The Speaker was then led to the grandstand to deliver his speech.
He took the opportunity to challenge the government not only to partner with churches, but recognize the immediate needs of all mainline churches in funding their operational costs.
He said for so long, the government has only partnered with churches in small ways. In his view, the government could do more to involve the church.
