– President Buhari casting his vote in Daura

Followers of today’s Governorship and House of Assembly Elections in Nigeria are still wondering why the First Lady, Aisha Buhari was absent at their polling unit as President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday cast his vote without his wife.

At polling unit 003 at Sarkin Yara Ward A in Daura, Katsina State, where the President casted his vote for the governorship and house assembly elections, his wife, Aisha, was conspicuously missing as she stayed back in Abuja. Unlike in the presidential election.

However, the president said the outcomes of the Governorship and State of Assembly elections would favour the All Progressives Congress (APC) across the country as Nigerians know the party “means what it says, and says what it means.’’

Buhari said that he was not surprised at the results of the Presidential elections on February 25, 2023, which saw Sen. Bola Tinubu emerging as President-elect, since the APC campaigns were thorough, and detailed.

“I am sure we are going to win, again,’’ he reassured.

The president urged the electorate to follow their conscience in choosing the right leaders, both state executives and legislatures, admonishing that the era of vote buying had been diminished.

“I am aware that the money is not there like before for people to sway voters, like they used to do.

“And if they bring out money now, the people should pocket it and still vote their conscience,’’ Buhari said.

The president said that the APC followed the constitutional procedure for the entire electoral process, choosing a party Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu.
