“If there is any future for me someday in politics, I’ve always said to you all in the media and you’ve twist me so many times; that when the right time comes, I will know and I will be there. I’ve never shied away. But I am looking forward to….if my personal view matters; an early retirement on a farm writing books. That’s my personal ambition.”
