The statement reads partly:

“In a country like Nigeria, where there are many brilliant brains with a strong international reputation, the likes of Aliko Dangote,  Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Mrs Ibukun Awosika, Bode Augusto, Segun Agbaje, Fola Adeola, Tunde Folawiyo, Atedo Peterside, Kola Adesina, Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Mr Mke Adenuga, Mr Akinwumi Adesina,  why let Nigeria be ruled by people who lack such understanding when there are boardroom czars with a plethora of entrepreneurship knowledge?

They stressed that the Nigerian economy would do well under these leading names.
