Senate President Bukola Saraki has reeled out election figures to support claims that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, stands a great chance of winning the presidential polls.
In his permutation, Saraki said the PDP will “take South East, South-South, and North Central” adding that “South West Will be split, North East will be split and the North West will be marginally here and there”.
Speaking in an interview during a television program, Saraki argued that though in the 2015 election Buhari won the Northeast and Northwest, the feat will not be repeated in 2019.
Saraki went on to say that the numbers which the APC will lose in the North East and North West, he cannot make it up anywhere in the country”. The lawmaker asserted that the ruling party is panicking, saying the numbers do not support their victory.
The former Kwara state governor said he is certain that the votes lost by APC in the north will not be made up for in the south, hence, calling on all Nigerians to be vigilant that there must be a game plan.
