Aboderin, who spoke with Newspot after his emergence
on Friday, urged the electorate to be guided as they exercise their franchise in the 2023 elections.
He advised people of the federal constituency to vote for credible candidates.
He explained that Nigeria is yet to get it right, because wrong candidates were fielded to run the system.
Aboderin said, “The problem is that the electorate had been voting for wrong candidates. The right candidates are in the SDP. For Ibadan North-East/South-East, the right candidate is in the SDP.
