He said , “ Coming against the backdrop of the victory in Ekiti governorship election , the string of victory by our party, the APC , is a clear indication of the way things will go in 2019 .
‘‘ For those who are discerning ; those who have ears and eyes they will see , hear and understand.
“ Those who don’ t understand are entitled to their mistaken assumptions. ”
