" We need to calm down, we are to uptight, nervy, edgy, We grumble murmur too much, call the government a lot of names, try to demonize those serving the nation, when it could be 'Our last chance in the world' to really fix things.

"If you listen to some people ; angry youths, religious leaders, political analysts, newspaper columnists, news reviewers, so-called activists, then nothing positive is happening in the country. It is all about insurgency banditry, killings Joblessness, corruption, lack and deprivation."

He further stressed that other countries are suffering from same problems that Nigeria suffers from.

Making reference also to a retired Airforce Grp Capt. Sadeeq Garba(rtd), who had recently appeared on Channels TV he said,
