Former interim national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has warned that Nigeria might soon get a new set of political leaders he described as ‘vagabonds.’
The former governor of Osun state warned all governors and other political leaders, especially the ones on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to beware of ‘political vagabonds.’
According to him, the vagabonds would later come out to challenge and accuse them of corruption to take over the mantle of leadership.

The elder statesman made the comment in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, during his 85th birthday anniversary and the unveiling of Adebisi Akande Foundation.
His words: “We are in a Nigeria where everybody is more corrupt. Corruption is in the mind of everybody. These vagabonds are in the party and struggling to become leaders. Armageddon has started. These coming political vagabonds are going to fight with you.
“Today the vagabonds are hiding under your armpits, under your garments. The current political leaders in Nigeria should be careful of these new sets of vagabonds. They (vagabonds) are the most corrupt, they are becoming more popular in the minds of the people.
“They have more money and are possibly richer than you. They will fight and possibly take over power if you are not careful, but they don’t mean well for the nation.”
