Through a statement from his media office, released today in Abuja, the National Chairman said that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, should hide its head in shame that after four years in the office, it had to use the combined team of gullible INEC staff and military operatives to hang on to power after “stealing the people’s mandate”.
Secondus told the victorious party flag bearers that if they had contested with the APC, it would have been an easy walkover but they found themselves battling with inec and military operatives.
