“For someone who stood by those of us that are law abiding and contributing to the economy of the state, we will repay him with our votes on November 11 and Insha Allah, Ododo will be victorious. All of us across the twenty one Local Government Areas are united in supporting the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress”.
