I don't believe in dis figure cus they spent more than dat especially d APC. They were cuming house to house to give money if u have voters card. Though I don't belong to any political party but wen u watch all d activities during campaign, u will shake ur head for d citizens of dis country. And obviously its now we kn d governors who use their state workers salary to campaign for their party candidate
