“This was a man who came with good intentions. He did his best. He was not a fake. He was a practical man. And he was a man who, through the Amotekun Corps, not only the state but the entire South-West ensured safety.

“I was an important part of the late Dr. Olusegun Agag administration and the Dr. Olusegun Mimiko administration, and I am a bridge between successive governments. I know where the gaps are and I know how it feels. .”
