“I also thank [Vanguard Newspaper] for conducting such an interesting and comprehensive poll across the 6 geo-political zones of our country.
“This will encourage me and the other 9 individuals and organisations that were listed from 2nd position to the 10th and who have also been unrelenting in their criticisms and opposition to the Buhari administration to fight all the more against the evil and injustice in the land.
“Without the love and the support of the people and the media we could not have done all that we did or achieved all that we have achieved over the last 5 years.
“It has been a long lonely road but it is one that we have no choice but to take.
“Thanks again. Meanwhile the struggle continues and my battle cry is “victory or death!””
