Nasir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, has stated that the All Progressives Congress APC’s defeat in the just concluded Edo Election may have been because voters changed their minds in the last fortnight.
The Governor while appearing on Channels Television ‘Sunrise Daily’, said he was optimistic about victory three weeks ago, owing to the result of the 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’s it. You have to go into elections knowing you can lose.”
The Kaduna State Governor 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.”
