  1. just becouse of his wife’s interest, mr president barred the bayelsa state governor to even contest in the recent PDP primaries conculuded in the state. know, he is trying to do away with the sokoto state governor just the way he did to sylva. Therefore, i urge the good people of sokoto to say no to jonathan’s agender.

  2. We also urge the PDP for fairness sake to rescue Kano State from the clutch of Kwankwaso the junkie for equally fighting President Jonathan and abandonig the PDP and promoting a fantical Kwankwasiya cults movement. Kano people are fed up with this glorified thug. If Sylva and Wammako should be barred for betraying President Jonathan, Kwankwaso should equally go as he is a menace and danger to the peace of Kano.

  3. Those who perpetuate evil will surely reap evil, the drum has just began, what is in the dark will sure come to light, there is no way a rotten egg would not stink.Kwankwaso is one of many.

  4. They should go ahead n do whatever they like n see if PDP can win in sokoto, PDP should know that the 100 percent support they got during d last election was not because sokoto people like d party but it’s because of d Wamako’s popularity
