” They are worried about the popularity and acceptance of the PDP and our amiable Governor so much that they have become desperate in their quest to stop a contest they know they will lose.”
Osagie maintained law-abiding citizen, Obaseki was going to court to seek the vacation of the restraining order.
The governor appealed to the people of the state, his supporters and members of the Peoples Democratic party, to remain calm and law-abiding
