    It is going to be the mother of all shame ,disgrace, deciet and disappointments for buhari to go to the people whom he described as 5% to ask for their votes for his axis of evil party .is going to be a double shame for buhari to go to Edo to campaign for votes in favour of a party and a government that have ran Nigeria aground ,bankrupted her and led nigeria into a terrible reccession within 16 months of being voted into power.Oshiomole have been a terrible error of judgment on the part of the good people of Edo,after 8 years in office ,and after receiving trillions of naira from faac,all that oshiomole is bestowing to Edo people is a very huge debt running into hundreds of billions and poorly constructed few roads deceitfully executed to siphon Edo peoples resources.
    Edo people shall do themselves a big favour if they vote out those using satanic brooms to sweep away development, peace and prosperity of Edo state while using propaganda and paid media blitz to decieve Edo people. Edo must vote for a pastor whom you can hold accountable and not those who will ask you to go and die after taking power.
