The political scientist added that the consequences of the ‘Jagba’ syndrome was what played out last Saturday as the gubernatorial candidate of the party lost woefully to the incumbent, Governor ‘Seyi Makinde.

He urged the leadership of the party at the national level to constitute caretaker committee that will see to the affairs of the party before a proper Congress would be conducted.

Gbade, however, said with the introduction of BVAS in the electoral system, the era of election rigging, manipulation and thuggery are over noting that it’s only a popular candidate that will thrive under this new technology.
