    But while this sheriff or what’s call him self is doing all this for? And is call him self a good Muslim, am not sure you understand the meaning of Islam if not u wouldn’t be creating difficulty for people to choose their leader. Majority don’t want you then stay aside afterall people call for you are already spoke that your service is no more needed.

      Fasholalover, were Wike and Fayose also working for APC when they went to go beg Sherrif to come and take the job? They thought they could use and dump him but this one will deal with them all, not everyone can be used and dumped . For once in your lives accept responsibility and stop trying to blame APC for PDP’s bad judgment. You are the same type that will be making noise about Buhari not blaming GEJ but the hypocrite that you are think it’s okay to blame APC for 2 of your prominent members going to lobby trouble .
