If you want to win, you must consult, build bridges, and understand that everyone counts because it is a game of numbers.

The election in Osun state must have demonstrated that the masses do not care about the type of character that governs them; they don’t care about your posh English; they don’t care whether or not you are capable.

Arrogance will not win you an election.
