According to him, Nigeria is a country consuming its own inhabitants, while expressed regret that he least envisaged that the country would be this bad.

He urged Nigerians to think of the mistake they plunged themselves into as another opportunity beckons in 2023.

He said: “Democracy is not an exercise undertaken by good men and women, which is what Nigerians have always fallen victim to — that we are looking for holy men, men of integrity, men of dignity to govern us and we assume that managing a diverse Nigeria does not require some level of deep intellectual reflection and understanding on the complexity in managing a society so energetic.
