“Democracy is a ruthless game of number. For as long as we practice politics the way we do and majority will carry the vote, it will very difficult for anyone whether it’s in the north-central, northeast, south-south. If you don’t have the number, you cannot become president of Nigeria.” Bakare said in the interview that was conducted over a phone call.

“My take on this is let us practice what I call value-added politics; politics of breakthrough where any citizen that is competent and any citizen that has what it takes regardless of whether he’s from the South-East or South-West, let him be in charge of our affairs.
