Just mainly because I was coming to the point out, the condition authorities sponsored thugs to barricade the roads, burnt tyres. How do you want the owner of that Audi auto that was burnt to feel? This is a voter that has ability to vote against us tomorrow and not a politician, so why burning his auto?”

I personally wrote a letter, signed it and handed it above to the Inspector-General of Law enforcement (IGP), notifying him of this rally, only for me to listen to that this very same IGP has cancelled the rally. I didn’t use PA, I did not use SA just to avoid communication hole, so I will want to know from the IGP and the Edo State Command what went mistaken.”

This is what we have been functioning on but the governor has regularly refused to show up at an all-inclusive conference.”

As I stand listed here now, I am taller now than I was just yesterday due to the fact we have harvested to our party people today who have been aspect of the basis of APC, individuals who participated in the negotiations for the merger, not only have they returned house, they have also used their connection in the other party they have been to shift individuals to be a part of us”, he mentioned.
