After casting his ballot on Saturday, Senate President Ahmad Lawan predicted that the All Progressives Congress, the current government, will win at least 28 states.
At the Katuzu ward polling location in the Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State, where he voted in the governorship and state house of assembly elections, Lawan responded to inquiries from reporters by making the statement.
At the time of the most recent presidential election, the APC enjoyed an outright victory in 12 states, giving it control of 21 of the 36 states.
Lawan claimed that some of the credit for the progress in the nation’s election system should go to the APC, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, and the ninth National Assembly.
We have power of the National Assembly, Lawan declared. The presidency is ours. At the conclusion of this election, we will have won no fewer than 28 states.
“The APC and President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration merit kudos for allowing the process to be completely governed by INEC’s rules and procedures.
That we don’t exploit our incumbency to prevent the opposition or other political parties from winning in strongholds of the APC, he remarked.
“The ninth National Assembly deserves credit for passing a statute that has improved our electoral process,” he continued.
“I believe there is still room for improvement, but congratulations to the ninth National Assembly for establishing an Electoral Act that is giving more roles to technology to decide and affect the outcome of our elections rather than some sort of fraud,” the author said.
The Senate President expressed his happiness that the BVAS is operating here when asked about the election process. I haven’t yet heard any reports about the procedure failing anyplace in my local government.
