Its APC's fault according to PDP and its PDP's fault according to APC so they can manipulate the elections. That's what we might hear from these 2 useless parties we have. If Nigerians would open up their mind they would not even bother to vote as the elections are always a sham. Rarely do you get a different side of the coin.
