He said that the noise, anger and distress of the hungry people would not let those who are okay be at peace, adding, “There is transferred aggression by the common people in Nigeria against people who feel they are okay and that is what the country has to address. We have to address it.

“In a situation where we have almost 70 per cent of rudderless people, who are poverty-stricken, another 20 per cent out of the remaining 30 per cent are losing their jobs, a fragment of 10 per cent who think they are okay cannot be okay. That is why we have to show sympathy and we have to lift people,” he said.

The senior advocate, spoke at Ikere Ekiti, his hometown, on Saturday during the 27th Wole Olanipekun Scholarship Scheme, 4th Empowerment Programme of Wole Olanipekun Foundation and distribution of palliatives.
