Edo election: El-Rufai Speaks On Obaseki’s Victory


Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State, has said that the loss All Progressives Congress, APC, encountered yesterday in the Edo elections, might be because voters changed their minds in the last two weeks.


El-Rufai said this on Monday morning, during Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.


According to the Governor, he was optimistic as at three weeks ago, because of the result of polls.


“Three weeks ago, the polls clearly showed that 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 said 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 said.
