“Yes his defection is a regrettable development, it is unfortunate because he is a young man that we loved so much, but he decided to come to show his true colour as a fabricator of lies against my person who has helped him to reconnect and capture his mandate as a member of the Federal House of Representatives after he was denied opportunity by the former Governor.”
“Look at the contracts Dogara awarded in his constituency, the amount is beyond expectations, but look at the road project we awarded form Burga to yalwan Duguri and the amount budgeted for the project.”
