No Candidate Will Get Buhari’s 1.9m Kano Votes of 2015, Says Datti Baba-Ahmed

Must read

Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says no candidate will replicate the votes polled by President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 elections in Kano state.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television on Tuesday, the LP vice-presidential candidate said his party is gaining support in the northern part of the country.

In the 2015 Presidential elections Buhari, then candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scored 1,903,999 votes in Kano while former president Goodluck Jonathan polled 215,779 votes.

Buhari was declared the winner of the elections after he scored a total of 15,424,921 votes to defeat incumbent Jonathan who polled 12,853,162 votes.

The huge number of votes garnered by Buhari in Kano was instrumental to his victory.

Making reference to previous polls, Baba-Ahmed said the hopes of APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to get large votes from the north in the coming elections have been dashed.

He said the LP would win the polls while the PDP and APC would be the runners-up.

Baba-Ahmed said the presidential campaign of LP has moved beyond social media and currently gaining momentum in the northern region.

“We have women rising to the challenge now more than we thought. We have the youths uniting particularly in the north,” he said.
