Whilst noting that it is legitimate to have such ambitions, the governor however, said: “As an administration unwaveringly committed to delivering on its electoral promises, any activity that is capable of undermining the implementation of the ‘Building Our Future Together Agenda’ of the administration will not be tolerated.”
