He recently revealed that after several years of fighting against the government, he is just tired.
According to him, if the young ones cannot get themselves together to take the fight to the politicians, they should wait for the end of the world.
He added that it is very sad that it has taken too long for Nigerians to realize that things are not right with the country.
His words, “After 40 years, am tired. If young pipo can’t get themselves together, let dem wait for Jesus.”
