Buhari Is The Winner!!!

Latest reports emanating from the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, western Nigeria, indicate that former Head of State, Major General Muhammadu Buhari is coasting home to victory in the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primary.

As at the time of this report (4:51 p.m. December 11, Thursday) Buhari has garnered a total votes of 3,430 to lead four other aspirants of the APC.

No fewer than 7,214 delegates were accredited to vote at the convention. 8,000 delegates were initially expected at the convention.

At the moment, the offical results are:

Gen. Buhari – 3,430

Kwankwaso – 974

Atiku – 954

Okorocha – 674

Nda-Isaiah – 10

Below, read how the sorting and counting developed:

Though Buhari has not been officially declared as the winner of the primaries, if he eventually wins the ticket, he will square up with President Goodluck Jonathan, who clinched the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s ticket, in next year’s presidential election.

It was gathered that signs of Buhari’s commanding lead came as officials kept announcing his name as most of the votes were being announced .

The result so far has thrown up surprises with the Kano state Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso being the one giving Buhari a close chase while former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is trailing behind with Rochas Okorocha and Sam Nda-Isaiah.

Baring no significant changes, Buhari will square up against incumbent Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan in a crucial election next year.

Meanwhile, Atiku has congratulated Buhari for his victory.
