He added: "We are going to be in a place which I believe will be a much stronger place by the virtue of the foundation that we have laid."

He also added that there are still challenges to surmount despite the prospect.

"The concrete which we have cast is not yet hardened so there is still a lot of fragility and a lot of work to be done,” he said.
