But at the launch of his biography titled: “Moment of Truth”, is based on the life story of Bakare, Mimiko stated that his exemplary leadership qualities meant he will be come president someday.
“Bakare is an epitome of a true leadership. I see him becoming president in Nigeria someday,” Mimiko said at the book launch.

Bakare is well respected for his stance against corruption, bribery and mismanagement of government funds.
