Quotes

"(The) two state governments should come up with lasting solutions. The farmers would want their crops to be protected, while the cattle men will also want their cattle to feed. So, the government should fashion out peaceful means to end the crisis" Obasanjo said
The governor said the figure being branded by the opposition, "is only in their imagination, as they cannot believe the level of transformation going on. They imagined that transformation is not possible without a huge amount of loan. That is why they are circulating such a figure. And by the end of this month, we will pay N2 billion to reduce it to 39 billion"
"Yes, I can confirm that I met with Mr. President on his invitation."
"When I was growing up, despite having come from a poor background, I studied in good atmosphere, airy, spacious and furnished classrooms."
