“APC and PDP are the two political parties that destroyed this country that is why we have issue of kidnapping, banditry, insurgency, unwarranted killings and a paralysed economy, which had instituted hunger and starvation in the country.
“Why should we continue to allow them to continue their exploitations and destruction? I took the PDP eleven times to court to disagree with some action that was questionable, so l am never part of these destructions,” he said.
