In his remarks, Ahman Pategi said his former party- the PDP “has failed to entice the Kwara north senatorial district despite several political gimmicks because even the unborn children in Kwara north will live to hear about how the party underdeveloped their senatorial district and how the leadership of the party made them a third class citizens by playing upon their intelligence for years, a treatment now christened “the animal farm gesture”.
