â€œYou come to church to worship God and so I want you to keep your eyes on Him and to worship Him and to focus on Him.â€

He indicated, however, that he has submitted himself to investigations by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (Eoco).
â€œI have preferred not to respond in the public domain, not as an admission of guilt, but out of respect for the due process and the ongoing investigations,â€ he said in the statement issued on Tuesday.
