Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the former governor of Adamawa state and former Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Murtala Nyako, said the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), will face defeat in many states because it had ignored all cogent advice.
Nyako said unresolved aggrieved situations, impunity and lack of respect for the wishes of the people will likely cost the APC its victory in many states.
He said: “The party neglected all cogent advice given to it at the top level and so many people are today so aggrieved in all the states such that making them to change their minds is difficult and this may cost the party victory in many states."
