“I reliably gathered that the six lawmakers that defected to APC in a video that is trending online were given 300 million to share. They are not alone because my information revealed that six other lawmakers, four serving Commissioners and others got their share of the 300 million.
“The assignment given to them was to destabilize our peaceful State a d set it on fire to pave way for the emergence of Andy Uba as Anambra State Governor.
