Delivering a paper entitled: ‘’ Making Nigeria great: Whose responsibility’’  at the Kaduna town hall meeting organized by the Christian Awareness Initiative of Nigeria (CHAIN), he said there is urgent need for Nigerians to team up irrespective of their differences and fight corruption by ensuring that only credible candidates win elections.

“My last three calls would therefore be: Let us register to vote en mass, let us vote en mass, and let us defend our votes by all means. We must demand for competent people and not corrupt people for good governance. There is urgent need for the entrenchment of political leadership that will fight corruption genuinely.

“We have got to a point where Nigerians must come together and say enough is enough to corruption because it has taken over the country, it is not limited to the public sector, the private sector is not left out of the scourge. If you fight corruption, it fights you back. Those we told that what they were doing in offices was bad, were those people that were after me. They almost kiledl me. Twice, they attempted it,’’ he said.

He also said the very day he left Nigeria for self exile abroad his car was shot along Millennium Park in Abuja. “They corruptly enrich themselves and they used the money they stole from office to find a means to remain in power so that they are not arrested. We must not allow them,’’ he added.

He described the controversial zoning as a single affair of a political and urged Nigerians to weigh aspirants based on their competencies and not where they are from.
