According to the governor, it is very difficult for someone who is between 40 to 50 years old to convince Nigerians, particularly those in the political sphere, that he or she has the experience to manage Nigeria because it is a complex country.
"And some of the people running, frankly, are a joke, as far as I am concerned. Every job looks easy from the distance but I have had the privilege of working with at least three presidents, very closely and I have seen the demands of the job and what it is."
