    Not surprised PDP won Igala-Mela/Odolu and Ibaji; these are igala-Ibo Kogites. Not surprised at Yagba and Kabba-bunu; they are always getting it wrong. Expect more of APC win from Okene region, Koton-karfi, Jamata, Gegu. Obviously, Igala’s support had waved towards APC recently because PDP had not being able to measure near what Audu did in the state; expect more APC win from pure Igala area.

      BTT, dont generate any war of sentiments from myopic judgments here. Which Igala area is not pure? What are the indices of the superiority of reasoning of your so called “pure Igala area” over other areas? Better watch ur words.
