Ben Ayade be reminded that he didn’t join the PDP bus from the motor park hence his name is not on the manifest of passengers, rather he joined the bus along the way as those who got to their destinations alighted to create a space for him. This gave him a seat in the bus, the bus had conductors and drivers, he can not suffocate the driver or mis-direct the driver to a ditch in a bid to take over the steering. Being at the front seat doesn’t mean that you know the way, you sat there because you told the conductors that you have knowledge of the compass and that was the available seat when you joined the bus.
