And when he returned, he is still the Jagaban of Borgu and the Asiwaju of Lagos. They called him a thief he cared not but still focused and it never bugged the Lagosians either.
They spoke about his political sagacity, he is the last man standing, while they were asleep, he was building people and making lieutenants governors, ministers and head of parastatals and deeply involved in activities across the ocean.
