“Kabiyesi, Your Royal Highness, as I stand before you, there are few of us left running. One says he is Atiku. How many times has he been running? He’s always on the run and he’s tired. Tell him to go and sit down. Enough is enough.
“The other one, he think na statistic we go chop. He lies with arithmetics that no Indian can ever solve. To mention his name is a disgrace to me sef. I won’t mention the name. Wrong arithmetic, wrong statistics, warehouse economy. That’s not what Nigeria needs.
“Kabiyesi, Your Royal Majesty, it was a joy to find one of my own blood being part of you from Badagry. So, what else do you need? you need honesty; you need the man who knows the road. That is me.”
