Nigerians have also been talking about the alleged forced closure of markets and shops in the Delta state by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) vice-presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

Governor Okowa claimed during the campaign that Delta remained Atiku’s second home because he had many friends in the Delta state and could secure a large number of votes.

It is understood that the closure of the market was to mobilize Delta people for an election campaign to show solidarity with the state’s PDP.
