P.M. leaves plans to God

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi has a plan for everything. 

Just two weeks back in his office after undergoing medical treatment in New Zealand, Tuilaepa says he does not plan to waste any time. 

His first public appearance was two days after his return where he called a press conference and thanked members of the public for the prayers and support that helped him recover from a severe infection. 

He however, did not specify what the infection was. 

During an interview with the Samoa Observer last week, he was asked if the Human Rights Protection Party had a Plan B if he should decide to step down as Prime Minister. 

“Nothing is impossible with God. 

“There is a plan B,” said the Prime Minister.  

“Plan B comes from God. 

“There is nothing to worry about, God oversees everything and he will send a sacrificial lamb for the offering. 

“When God is involved there is a Plan B, Plan C and a Plan D,” he said smiling.  

Last month, the Prime Minister was flown to New Zealand for medical checkup early this month.  

 “I am one 100 per cent healthy,” he said during a press conference at his office last week.  

According to Tuilaepa, he was not aware of the challenges associated with his health until local physicians told him. 

“I want to thank the Samoans here and in New Zealand who stopped by for a visit, although some were not allowed in, but it was comforting to be healed by God’s healing hands, due to the many prayers by our people who prayed for my speedy recovery.
