    can APC candidates at all level contesting elections come out openly to tell Nigerians they will accept defeat if they loose? Nigerians be wise and vote GEJ and don’t forget that empty bottles and lite metal’s makes the irritating and insignificant noise. I salute the moving train of PDP.I promise 100 votes for PDP in my pooling unit.
