“Today, you are here again, you say people will labour to death. The man is telling everybody that you don't have to work to be somebody in life. Me, I want to labour, but I don't want to labour in vain.
“You want to tell our parents that laboured to send us to school that they have just wasted their own lifetime? What they are doing in Yoruba land is to truncate our progress. As a Yourba man, I am going to face him and I am facing him.
“If he has all the powers in the world, let him do his worse. He is not the only Yoruba man. If he wants to be president, let him campaign all over Nigeria.”
