The former Anambra governor was quoted by Daily Trust to have said:

“We can’t allow this gangsterism to continue, Nigerians should take back their country. Seventy percent of those who are in politics today should not have any reason to be near there. I have said it, politics in Nigeria is a case where lunatics took over the asylum.
“You must replace that asylum with people who are competent. This is the only country where the worst is leading; the best should lead. I have served there; I was a trader and gradually entered into politics.
“How do you think about one person taking N80 billion? It is not greed; it is sickness. When you take N1 billion, that is greed, but when you take N80 billion, that is sickness. Mad people have taken over our politics.
