Nigerians know all these things. The so-called 12 million voters they are laying claim to would have been reduced.
“Because if you look at the economic situation, where people are complaining that they cannot even have one square meal, how do you expect them to come out and aggravate votes up to 12 million for somebody who has been the architect of their misfortune?”
