"This is the challenge of this democracy, it is not unique to APC, is not unique to PDP, it is across all the political parties. And go and check, especially at the presidential level, we have a situation where all the candidates are known faces in terms of the electoral process in this country at the highest level.
"The only exception is perhaps our own candidate in APC. The last time the candidate appeared on the ballot was in 2003. And after 2003 he was not on the ballot.
"But it’s not the case, at least with our so-called three popular parties – PDP, NNPP, and Labour Party. The candidate of the Labour party was on the ballot in 2019. So I think these are some of the challenges."
