He said: “We approached this work with the spirit of patriotism, transparency and with an open heart in line with provisions of the Nigerian constitution and the party’s guidelines for the nomination of candidates”.
Emenike added, “Politics is a contest, as long as they are qualified, let them go to the field”.
