“I am a like a city set on the mountain which can not be hidden and which will always attract admirers and some foes as well. That is natural. Therefore, you cannot be going into gutters with pigs for any reason. I am above that. This is no grandstanding but a reflection of my person,” the international businessman explained.
“Like I said in my video last week, we have to ensure that we change the mindset of our teeming youths from negativism to positivsim. And there is no way we can do that in an atmosphere of rancour and acrimony. Some of us have chosen to rise beyond this and build a nation instead of destroying it,” Okunbo said.
