He said: “With the crowd, I see here, this election is won by PDP already.”
“The poll is for the liberation of the people. The governor is bringing development closer to the people.”
The deputy governor urged the people of the state to remain steadfast.
“You people have been with me since when I was in the House of Assembly. Give me the same support and I will not disappoint you.
