A really unexpected electoral set-back for BN.  The ill fruits of BN's decadent rule are popping up uncontrollably everywhere like a nightmare for BN at this sensitive hour when the clock is ticking to polling day. These sores of BN would go viral in no time and will do BN in on the day of reckoning.
