A Twitter user by the name, NOAH AYANNIYI, @AyanniyiNoah, said, “His party was there for 16 years, of which he was part of the 8 years of the 16 years. If he deserved it that much, they should’ve built one and name it after him… A man who failed to fix a road leading to his state deserves no honour as far as I’m concerned”
