Can we all see for ourselves that 'NO' politician really have the heart of making our country a better place for us to live in. Imagine Amosun declaring himself for SENATOR after 8yrs as Governor. What kind of people do we have in this country?

The ONLY way Amosun running for the Senate seat make sense is if the seat is currently held by another party and APC thinks he's the one who can win it for the party. But as far as I can tell that seat is currently held by the APC.
