It is coming from the mentality of a loser who is already fabricating justification for his loss. “It is also an evidence of insecurity, desperation and frustration occasioned by very successful and highly revealing Grand rally personally led President Buhari in Akure last Saturday.
“Indeed, it is clear that Oke is merely rehearsing his own confirmed plans to attack key leaders of our party who have been pencilled as stumbling blocks to their macabre plans for the Saturday election.
