"I love my country, Nigeria. I can never allow my personal aspiration to blind me to the dangers it can bring on my country. A country that made me what I am, gave me space to grow? I will do everything in my power to pay back Nigeria for what Nigeria has made me. I will work hard to see that Nigeria is stable, united and strong, so that as Nigeria has enabled me to grow, other Nigerians will also have the opportunity to grow to the best of their potentials, to be governors, ministers, parliamentarians, academicians, captains of industry, scientists, professionals and what have you." - Sule Lamido, Governor Jigawa State. Icheoku says what a highly commendable and patriotic statement.
