He said: ''Let those criticising these endorsements present their own aspirants or candidates if they think or feel that what they have is better than what we have endorsed so that the people can look at the Ďwhole of themí and make their choice. You donít criticise an action (if) you do not have a better option.''

He assured that the APC governorship primaries will be transparent despite the fact that his son in-law is an aspirant.
