Mrs. Buhari knocks Nigeria ruling APC over impunity, manipulation

Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe has defeated by a landslide other presidential contenders in the People's Democratic Party, in an online poll.

More than 14,800,000 votes were cast in the APC primary, said Kayode Fayemi, governor-elect of southwestern Ekiti state. I commend the party leadership and the Convention Planning Committee for giving us one of the best primary elections in Nigeria's history.

Governor Okowa in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu in Asaba, expressed optimism that having won the party's ticket, the former vice president would leverage on his track record as an entrepreneur and great employer of labour to grow the nation's economy.

"I am moved by the outcome of the convention and I promise you, I will not fail you".

Prior to Buhari taking office in 2015, the PDP had been the only party in power since the west African country's transition to civilian rule in 1999.

Even though they lost the presidential ticker to the former Vice President, all four men have resolved to remain in the PDP and worked for its success in the 2019 general election.

"All the doubting Thomases that thought we would all walk out after the results have been announced, we are not going anywhere but walking with Atiku to victory". We all knew right from the beginning that only one person will emerge so this is not a surprise to us.

A political analyst, Chief Jackson Lekan OJo, also told our correspondent in Port Harcourt that party leaders should come together and discuss ways to keep the party united and how its candidate would win the centre. "Once again sir, congratulations", said the Senate President.
