“I am not as bad as people from the outside say I am. I only engage based on principles. I neither take nor give bribes. If you want to relate with me, don’t give me money. I will also not give you money. I don’t want to go to jail so I won’t steal. But I won’t spare thieves,” he told the ministry staff.

He spoke when he assumed duty as minister and was received by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport, Alhaji Sabiu Zakari, directors and other staff.
