The former governor who has been in his local government area for days now, lobbying electorates to vote for his party was said to have been angry over the abysmal result gotten after the election. He was overheard saying to one of his lieutenants, “you allowed me to waste my dollars again”.
Alh. Idris was shocked at the result saying if the ruling party with no funds for mobilization could pull such votes in an election he spent a huge amount of dollars in, then he is has no credibility in the party anymore.
The Ex-Gov was said to have left his hometown in anger and caution his party men not to involve him in any political activities for now.
