    When these kind of people talk, they give us the impression that the electorates are irrelevant! There are over 170,000,000 people in Nigeria for God’s sake. People are fed-up with lousy and arrogant talks by some politicians! You are not going to buy people’s votes with bags of rice anymore. People have seen the light and will stand up for their rights. People will vote for the party that is capable of bringing corruption to its knees! The party that by their manifesto, strategy, utterances demonstrate that they truly believe in democracy – the government of the people, by the people and for the people! The government that will put first the people of Nigeria. You cannot continue to use Nigeria as a playground for your dirty and demonic politics!
