El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, has revealed why the All Progressives Congress lost in the Edo State governorship election.

The Kaduna State Governor noted that the APC may have lost in Edo because voters changed their mind in the last two weeks.

El-Rufai stated this on Monday morning, while appearing on Channels Tv.

He further stated that he was optimistic as at three weeks ago, because of the result of polls.

“Three weeks ago, the polls clearly showed the APC was going to win.”

“But the results came out differently from what we expected.”

“The election was decent. We were worried about violence, but there was none at all.”

“Obaseki has won and that is it. You have to go into elections knowing you can lose.”

El-Rufai also insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari does not try to influence elections with the federal might.

The President has never used what is called federal might to steal elections, like other governments have done in the past.”

“We always insist everyone go and pitch to the people and may the best man win,” he added.
