“I’m a member of the All Progressives Congress. I reported to the national leader of the APC. My impress has been stopped for no any reason by the Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
“I live as deputy governor in the house without security, I travelled home without police, my life is in danger,” he lamented.
