    Buhari should stop campaigning for states. He spoke for just 90seconds yesterday on the podium, just because he doesn’t have anything good to tell us in Ondo State except lies, only an animal who wants the hunger to continue will vote for APC/Chain.

  • Femi Fasoranti

    Since the inception of this Pa Bubu in office, what we are hearing from him is “We will do” nothing like ” We have done “. You can just imagine a man who has not done anything reasonable for Nigerians, who now came up with another lie of federal appointments. We are not fools in Ondo State, we don’t need your appointment, where is one Naira to One Dollar you promised us, where is daily meal you promised our school pupils, where is N5000 monthly wages you promised the unemployed youths. We want to vote SDP in Ondo State.
