Abuja - Candidate for the Plateau South Senatorial seat, Ret. Gen. Jeremiah Timbut Useni, fired a broadside at the All Progressives Congress (APC), doubting its so-called capacity to "clean the nation."

“Some people are holding brooms but they cannot clean their homes. I advise them to stop deceiving us and concentrate on cleaning their homes,” he said.

"I wonder why the sweeping agents are clamouring for change of governance at all levels when they are  parading questionable characters that have nothing to offer the country," added the former military man.

He thus urged the electorate to "think deeply" to avoid making the "wrong choice."

"Despite the challenges the nation is facing the country, PDP remains the only party to be trusted," he claimed. - CAJ News
