With reference to the above issue, I for one also share the same sentiment as Ernest had stressed.

Lets be reminded that achieving statehood is not all that rosy as one or collectively we may think of. Lets be realistic of our plans and initiatives.

How can we achieve statehood when we fail to deliver the efficient services needed by our people and as well as develop strategic policies that support sustainable developments within our shores or have the policy capacity to steer Isabel forward.
