"Nobody will come from somewhere else to promote Nigeria. We are the ones to promote our country and to project all the good in this land. We must give our citizens as well as the international community the chance to see and to appreciate the greatness of our country. There's a lot to admire about Nigeria as a country...if only someone will take the pleasure to point them to our citizens and give them the right mindset."

"For instance, most media organizations in this country will tell you that Nigerians are only interested in European football leagues and would rather report the Premier league in their headlines. But there's a lot to admire in Nigeria football, if only the media will choose not to see and report from the dark angle. I believe our media can get not only our people but the entire world, to be interested in the MADE IN NIGERIA FOOTBALL."

"It is common sense really, to promote your own. We have a football industry to build and to push it to become a world brand relevant and contributory to our economy. Nobody will build it for us unless we take the bull by the horn."
