His words:

“When you’re talking about such a man of excellence when he tells you he will secure Nigeria, he will secure Nigeria. “In this present government, I have a friend and I will call him by his name so that you can inquire, Comrade Farouk from Kebbi; his mother died and he couldn’t attend the funeral ceremony of his mother.

“They told him not to come because terrorists have taken over his city and had formed openly tolls, they have toll gates.” According to Okonkwo, the same Farouk lost his older sister and could not travel to Kebbi for her funeral. He added: “And he (Farouk) said to hell, this time around, ‘I will never think about tribe and I will never think about religion. I will think about religion in the past, I have voted tribe but this time around, I am going to vote for my freedom.’

“Nigeria as I say is in bondage today; oh yes! We should vote for our freedom.
