Tofowomo said since the inception of the APC administration in 2015, it had been woes and sad tales of events for Nigerians.

“Armed robbery and banditry are now an integral part of Nigeria. Nobody is safe, it is as bad as that. So, APC has failed the nation. The APC doesn’t have an agenda.
“Rather than going to APC, I’ll leave politics because APC is a dead party in Nigeria. They have wrecked the economy of this country. So, it is over my dead body, I can never decamp.
“For me, it’s PDP in the morning, afternoon, and at night. And if I leave PDP, I’m going back home. If you look at APC, it has ruined Nigeria’s economy, they have scored zero in that aspect."
