“With His APC, Did They Even Score 25 Percent Here During The 2015 And 2019 Elections? His Staff Stopped Him From Winning Rivers For His Presidential Candidate? Stopped Him From Winning The Governorship Election For His Candidate? Not Even A Senatorial Seat?

“Well, We Have Passed That. He Said Over His Dead Body Will I Be Governor, Now I Am Looking For That Dead Body. I Have Been Governor For Eight Years Now. In 2015 When I Won, They Said PDP Was In Power, But I Also Won Again In 2019 When APC Was In Power.”
