“These are the people otherwise I don’t see any reason for the cry out on this matter”.
“The truth of the matter is that we had 6 elections in this country and the one that was administered under the government of APC was adjudged to be very credible where you saw opposition winning elections under a sitting government. That was not the case during the PDP”.
