His words: our leaders are all reputable and respected people in the state. Politics is a game of choice, and choices are made from varieties as such we must give way for display of varieties in accordance with constitutional laws.

Also speaking a youth activist in the community, Abiye N. Georgewill condemned the way and the manner in which political loyalists are destroying the events and the programmes of their opponents of their “masters”.

He charged all politicians to be focused and think of how to better the lot of the people of Abonnema. ###
