" Tell me, what have they said they will do for the State? All you hear is Warsaw threats and violence and killings. I am sorry, I am a man of peace and I can't be in such a party. APC was a party whose symbol was broom but sadly it is now a party of sword and guns. That is why I am leaving and never to return "
