“I can bet with you that the government cannot pay such amount monthly.

“Where do we get such amount to pay millions of people monthly? Even if such an amount is available, the government will not pay. It is one of the usual promises. This is another scam coming from a government that has perfected the art of deceit.

“Democracy gives me the right to make my opinion known. So, anything I say is my personal opinion and not anyone’s, and it is not targeted at anyone. So, I don’t know why people should be offended by what I say.

“People do contact me from outside Nigeria to speak on issues, and I do. What I say might not necessarily be right but that is my opinion. And so, I do not expect anyone to pick offense on what I say because it is my opinion.”
