He should utilize the followership he charges to drum bolster for genuine federalism.”

Does he not realize that he is putting those speculations in danger and imperiling the wellspring of work of other individuals? He ought to die the possibility of coming to Lagos, and on the off chance that I may prompt, he should change methodology or unite with Ohanaeze.
