Contrary to the perception of the PDP party, the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai has announced that Buhari has never abused the concept of federal might to facilitate Godwin Obaseki’s resounding victory in the just concluded Edo state election.
The governor made the statement on a live television programme yesterday while commenting on the Edo State governorship election.
He said he was optimistic that the APC would win the election.
According to him, indications pointed out that the ruling party would emerge successful until three weeks to the poll.
He said unlike past governments, Buhari allowed the will of the people to prevail in the election.
“We’d have loved to win. Quite frankly, I was optimistic up to three weeks ago because there was an indication that we were going to win. I don’t know what happened in the last two, three weeks of the campaign. As you know, a large number of voters make up their minds in the last two weeks of the election, many voters decide no matter what happens, this is how I’m voting,” el-Rufai said.
