Gizo further stressed, “We believe this act of subverting has the express approval of the governor just to deny the people’s choice and foist unpopular candidates that will cause misfortune to the party as the preferred candidate.”

He explained that since the matter became open in the public domain the governor had remained silent over it adding that this means silence is consent as he has the authority to caution all the perpetrators.
