All Progressives Congress chieftain in Bauchi State, Nasiru Darazo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will be defeated in the 2019 election following the level of irregularities recorded throughout the federation in the party’s primary elections.
Similarly, the APC chieftain said, President Buhari and APC will surely lose Bauchi state including most States in Northern part of the country in 2019.
Darazo made the observation in an exclusive chat with DAILY POST Friday in Bauchi, saying that APC primaries were marred by imposition by State governors under APC.
He added that the politics of imposition has already created bad blood against Buhari where his acceptance and popularity is at stake.
” We had warned APC and President Buhari to ensure governor Abubakar did not use state apparatus to secure the party’s guber ticket ahead of 2019 election, yet nothing was done.
He lament that there had been no primary election in Bauchi state since the exercise commenced last week.
Darazo cautioned that other APC aggrieved members will not allow themselves to be humiliated from the 2019 election against the support of the voters.
The APC chieftain vowed that President Buhari will lose Bauchi state to the opposition, describing APC primaries as a child-play, saying no election was held to produce any candidate in whatever position.
” I want to make it clear that there was no primary election held in Bauchi APC, only those preferred by governor Abubakar were candidates of the party for various positions and is that not a strong indication that APC has lost the election in 2019?” Darazo fumed.
He alleged that several aspirants under APC were shortchanged and denied the opportunity to contest in favour of Abubakar’s candidates across the state.
