OpenLife Nigeria reports that Honourable Babangida Ibrahim, member of the House of Representatives, who represents the Malumfashi/Kafur Federal Constituency in Katsina State has exposed the emptiness of the concept of large crowds in the campaign rallies of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC. In an interview earlier published in Punch Newspaper, the Honourable member dissected the wrong notions associated with rented crowds
Let me tell you what is happening. When you have a government, you can organise any gathering but what is important and key is not about the numbers or the crowds you assemble in a place, it is about the feeling of the people at the lower level – the actual voters. That is what matters. By the time the election approaches, you will see that the reality will come out. All these cover-ups will be exposed. Because you have money, you can invite anybody; put any gathering of people together at any place at any time. That is because you have the resources to do that. But there is a limitation to that. Those gatherings, those crowds, they are all artificial.
