The PDP further accused the ruling APC of using falsehood to score cheap political point and urged electorates to reject the party.

‘We exhort Nigerians and Kwarans to ignore the “dying horse’s” last kicks shenanigans of the unfortunate Kwara state APC regime and vote in the PDP, from top to bottom in the fast-approaching general elections.
