The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has lost to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar, at the polling unit of the family of Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Naija News learnt that the polling unit 006 is located in Mbamoi ward, Yola South Local Government Area, and belongs to the first lady’s family.

Aisha’s younger brother, Modi Halilu, and APC’s governorship candidate in the state, Aishatu Binani, also voted at the polling unit.

In spite of this, Atiku won at the polling unit with 129 votes while Tinubu scored 101 votes.

Similarly, Tinubu lost to Atiku in the ward of Nuhu Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in Bako ward, Yola south LGA of Yola state.

Ribadu is the director of field operations of the APC presidential campaign council.

However, results of the presidential election held on Saturday showed that the ex-EFCC chairman won his polling unit, but he could not garner enough support to win the ward for Tinubu.
