According to the former minister of transportation, refusing to come on the election day will amount to Cole losing the election.
Hear him “Every Igbo man should come out because your destiny depends on that. We cannot win without you. If you don’t come out that day, we have lost. I am begging you to come out on Saturday" Leadership Newspaper quoted Rotimi Amaechi as saying.
