Portraying the authenticity of their group and how far they have gone in mobilising, for surety, he said the American and European based Diaspora group can only support by reaching out to their families and peers in Nigeria, ”but the voting strength of G6-APC Diaspora ECOWAS Diaspora countries based group can never be marched with their million PVC cards because they will come down to Nigeria to cast their votes,” he said.
