He said “It is also not secret that the running mate of PDP’s candidate, his home base is disputing his suitability for that position, and this dispute is not being done in the bedrooms. It’s being done in village squares.

“And they are giving reasons that where they were hoping for gold, they have been given bronze that will postpone their access to the gold side.

“You think those guys are going to be fooled?”
