He, however, acknowledges that Nigerians are good and smart people but the “bad Apples” are the ones painting the country in back colors

He said, “Of course, there are a few bad apples that came out. The bad ones are extremely smart. But they put their intelligence all in the wrong place.

“If they were to gear that towards something more positive or productive… Because the ones that did, there are more billionaires being made in Nigeria than anywhere in the world.”
