Okuweh, who spoke to National Mirror, said rather than castigate members of the panel of the election petition tribunal that sacked him, he should concentrate more on the coming elections.

The analyst, who hinted that he sees the APC candidate as a better prepared candidate, also called on Wike to stop apportioning blame on any individual or group for the current political development in the state.
