APC primaries: Buhari’s ex-aide leaks video of how election was rigged in Kano


President Muhammadu Buhari’s immediate past Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has disclosed how the primary election in Kano State was allegedly rigged.

Ahmad shared a video of how delegates were given papers containing the names of aspirants to vote for during the primaries.

In the video, two men were seen writing the names of possibly their preferred aspirants and handing them to delegates.

The delegates collected the papers and inserted them in what is believed to be a ballot box.

In a tweet that accompanied the video, Ahmad noted that it would take a miracle for him to have scored one vote under such an arrangement.

He, however, vowed to pursue legal ways of reclaiming his mandate.

Ahmad wrote: “Just a glimpse of what happened during the so-called primaries in my constituency. Scoring a single vote must have even been a miracle.

“There are much more to what was seen here. Exploring all the possible and legal ways to reclaim our mandate.”

It had been reported that Bashir, who was aspiring for the position of House of Representatives, lost the election to the incumbent Rep, Mahmud Gaya.

The former Presidential media Aide has already rejected the results of the APC primary election for the Albasu/Gaya/Ajingi Federal Constituency in Kano State.
