1. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should not re-appoint the former county commissioners that worked with him previously specially to counties that will be allocated to I-TGONU in this transitional period let him appoint the new faces with fresh thoughts that will think of development instead of destruction,looting and raiding their fellows.

2. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should not attempt disarming the helpless youth at this fragile atmosphere in South Sudan as long as the security arrangements are not fully implemented across the country because the civil population in Unity State are not certain about the commitment of the signatory to the agreement till they are fully implemented it.

3. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should not politicize the youth Initiatives for his political benefit instead, let young people exercise their own social activities independently without any kind of manipulation and political influence from him.

4. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should confess and apologise publicly to people of Unity State from wherever they are for all bad things he did to them so that forgiveness and peace will reign among sons and daughters of Unity State.

5. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should critically think about people in Unimiss camps and find out the possible answer to why we have Nuer in P.O.C of Bentiu who don’t like staying outside while it’s also their fellow Nuer staying outside meaning that there is paranoia of
” Nuer fearing Nuer” in our State something which is very unfortunate, so he have to make sure that he work hard together with their local leaders across the camp to put to an end such paranoia between our people in Unity State by carrying out a very good mobilization with an absolute Faith for people in Unimiss camps to return back to their respective residences.

6. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should try his level best to make some developmental progress in term of infrastructure in Unity State by renovating the broken buildings that were shut by bullets during the war, construction of new roads, connecting electricity in the town and outside, renovating hospitals, schools and providing clean water for people of Unity State.

7. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should make sure the full security is restored across the state and beyond so that the environment will be safe for the movement of inhabitants from one county to another and most importantly for people not fear each other across unity state like before.

8. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should not just implement whatever order come from Juba this time around without making good analysis on it for the wellbeing of people because not every order is ought to be implemented there are some orders you don’t implement as leader if they may jeopardise the lives of your people.

9. Dr. Joseph Manytuil should not restrict the freedom of press and expression in Unity State because press is the only mean he or all of us in Unity State will use to correct our faults and he will use it for the adjustment of whatever might go wrong in his leadership, successful leaders in the world accept and enjoy criticism not because they don’t have autocratic powers to apply censorship on media to silence the dissidents but because they realised that the more they are criticised the more they transform themselves from weak to a very strong leaders , hence, I urge Dr. Joseph Manytuil to observe this advice.

10. Lastly, Dr. Joseph Manytuil should always prioritize the Public interest of Unity State more than private interests, Unity State has been there before him and before anyone else it’s our collective responsibility to defend the land of our ancestors from both internal and external aggression whose aims is to tear down the unity state , Unity State interest should be above political affiliations and clanish lines, we should not just use mere slogans for the duplicity and deception, let your leadership in this interim period bring change to our State, many people in Unity State are not happy with your leadership despite the fact that you were the popular governor in Unity state back then so I would like to advise you to work hard this time around so that you restore trust between you and people of unity state .
