” APC is not like his own party, the People’s Democratic Party that has stolen our commonwealth and plunged the nation into a state of coma
“Yes, we will mobilise our members for the primary but the allegation that we are sharing that kind of money by the governor is laughable
” We will do everything that is right and within the constitution to send him out of the Government House, so let him start packing
“No amount of blackmail will stop or derail us. The Ekiti people are set for the APC and we will make sure we produce a candidate that is acceptable to the people.” he said.
