“APC has been moved from the mud, it has now rebranded. We appeal to all CDAs, CDCs, students, youths, market men and women to keep supporting the progressives.
“Without you, we are nothing and cannot achieve anything. Please open your eyes when casting your votes and when votes are being counted.
“My interest is to help humanity more at the senate and I want to assure everyone of dividends of democracy. I will not disappoint your, trust in me,” the candidate vowed.
He urged the people to vote rightly to reduce the number of void votes during elections.
