“They should go ahead and publish their names so that a lot of things will change in our electoral process.

“Election rigging is worse than armed robbery. So whatever sanctions that can be imposed will be highly welcomed by the PDP, he said.

  2. That’s good development, Nigeria politicians are fund of do anything if come to the election period, they can go to any length to achieve their aims i.e win election by fire by force. That’s will serve as a lesson to others.
