Adediran said, “We once belonged to a party that was not ready for a contest. So wherein lies the famed experience of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar? He clearly doesn’t have the requisite public sector experience. But we have now moved to the PDP, party that believes in the rule of law and in this party, we will put our numerical strength to test against the APC.” Copyright PUNCH All rights reserved. “Tambuwal, Saraki and Anyim headed Houses of the Legislature at the federal level as chief executives.
