“Let me tell you, I don’t like ingrates; I can’t stand it. This is some who was given power on a platter of gold. There’s no crisis, but he’s now creating crisis for himself. Do you know what I passed through in 2015 and 2019 in the hands of the federal government? It was terrible. The federal government fought me with everything. But I survived.

“However, in his case, God gave him power on a platter of Gold, but he wants to abuse it. What is happening now is what Odili said in his book: ‘Give a man power and money, then you will know the person.’

“If you haven’t given a man, power and money, then you don’t know the person. However, I’m not worried because I’m a politician. I know what other states are suffering because of debt, but go and check if I left liabilities; the records are there.

“I left projects for him to commission so he would showcase during his hundred days, then politics came in. We are just starting; God gave you something; you are now importing crisis.

“God gave this on the platter of gold; the Federal Government is not fighting you, no crisis, but you are the one now trying to create a crisis for yourself; only those who are natural ingrates will support what is happening there. I use the instrumentality of law to fight not thugs, time will come.”
