“We have taken our time to look at all the candidates contesting the governorship election, their antecedents, their conduct in public and private life, the manifestos of their parties and their programmes, all have been subjected to thorough screening. All stakeholders and opinion leaders we contacted were also unanimous in their preference for the incumbent governor, Capt. Idris Wada and his deputy, Yomi Awoniyi,” the group said.
