Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan has expressed optimism that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will end up winning 28 States after Saturday’s Governorship and State House of Assemblies elections.
He stated this after casting his vote on Saturday at his Polling Unit in Yobe North.
Lawan premised his belief on the Presidential and Parliamentary elections, where he claimed the APC won the majority of the National Assembly seats and the presidential seat.
While reacting to questions at the Katuzu ward polling unit in Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State where he cast his vote, Lawan insisted that APC will triumph in overall today.
He said: “APC currently controls 21 of the 36 states and had an outright win in 12 states during the last Presidential vote.”
Lawan said the APC and the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as the ninth National Assembly, deserved some credit for the improvement witnessed in the country’s electoral process.
He said: “The APC and the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari deserve credit, that we have allowed the process to be entirely determined by the guidelines and regulations of INEC. That we don’t use our incumbency factor to stop other political parties or opposition from winning in areas that are strong APC enclave.”
