“By the way, my sister Oby is stepping into politics now, she is going to contest for the office of the president, and I am waiting for October 7 to throw in my cap, so we can crash the entire system and begin to demand for a new Nigeria that we deserve,” he said.

Bakare, a former vice-presidential aspirant for the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) also said Nigeria has been structurally skewed to run a system that perpetuates bad leadership.

He urged Nigerians to engage the polity and demand for a new Nigeria, as envisioned by our founding fathers.

“Fellow Nigerians, the essence of this restructured pathway is to resuscitate the dreams of our founding fathers with respect to the Nigeria of our dreams.

“It is to revive the spirit of the stunted child, and transit her from her rested development into the great and prosperous motherland God designed her to be.

“It is to unite the six geo-political brothers to a winning and an unstoppable economic team. It is to unlock the diverse economic potential of our nation until the dreams of our fathers are realised.

“Those dreams were written in the creeds, contained in our founding documents, they were crafted in speeches made by our founding fathers, they were inserted in the lyrics of our founding national anthems.”
