General Muhammedu Buhari has recorded 3430 votes at the ongoing at the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Primaries in Lagos, thus emerging as the winner of the APC primaries.
  • Buhari wins with 3430 votes
  • Kwankwaso polled more votes than Atiku with 974 votes
  • Atiku Abubakar scores 954 votes
  • Owelle Rochas Okorocha polled 624 votes
  • Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah gets only 10 votes

He defeated Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso who had 974; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar had 954 votes; Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha had 624 and Publisher of Leadership newspapers, Nda-Isaiah with 10 votes.

A total of 7,214 delegates were accredited to vote at the convention attended by the leaders of the opposition party.

Mr. Buhari, 72, was Nigeria’s military leader between December 31, 1983 and August 27, 1985.

With his victory, Mr. Buhari, 72, will now face President Goodluck Jonathan, whose adoption was ratified by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at its special convention in the early hours of Thursday, in the February 14 presidential election.

It would also be the fourth time the former military leader will be running for president. He lost in all three previous ones.

In 2003, Mr. Buhari contested on the platform of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, against former President Olusegun Obasanjo of the PDP.'

He polled 12, 710,022 votes representing 32.17 per cent to Mr. Obasanjo’s 24,456,140 or 61.94 per cent.

In 2007, he ran again on the platform of the same party against the then outgoing governor of his home state, Katsina, Umaru Yar’Adua. He secured mere 6,605,299 votes or 18.72 per cent to Mr. Yar’Adua’s 26,638,063 or 69.82 per cent.

A few months after he and some of his loyalists dumped the ANPP to float a new party, the Congress for Progressive Congress, CPC, in 2011, Mr. Buhari threw his hat into the presidential ring again. He contested against Mr. Jonathan but polled 12, 214,853 to the president’s 22,495,187 votes.

The February 14 presidential election will therefore be a replay of the 2011 electoral battle as both Buhari and Jonathan will also feature again in the contest.

    1. You will be disappointed (you disguise as an alias but definitely as usual with such commentators, you are an Igbo man of course!) in 2015. As Buhari is set to make the needed change from Clueless, Rudderless and incompetent ruler to a more purposeful and visionary leadership. You and your ilk should just wait and observe the unfolding events from this moment onward instead on spitting junk

  5. I pray Mr Buhari can repeat what he did in his past regime. He made #1= $2 and oda stuffz in corruption sector. If he will govern Nigeria well without religion conflict............ Let him rule Nigeria once again. As 4 me, my Vote is 4 Buhari (Muslim or not muslim). Jonat has done wat he knws best. He divert $1billion meant 4 public fund in his State to entertainmnt, he used it to pay 'Beyonce' wen she came to Bayelsa 2006 or soo. Jonat era has promote corruption like mad.

    1. You're an ignorant! Stop listening to roadside news and junk newspapers. Go in search of facts and if you you really don't see how much Jonathan has done,then you're an ingrate.

  6. Buhari of course. Jonathan has shown that he is an Ijaw president of Nigeria. And he is not sincere in tackling Boko Haram. With him our people will continue to die. He runs the most corrupt government Nigeria ever has. He prefers to surround himself with established thieves and lawless people. In short another four years of Jonathan's rule will spell doom for our nascent democracy and country.
    Buhari is a seasoned, patriotic and tested administrator who we believe will tackle insurgency headlong, will bring sweeping changes and turn around the fortunes of our dear country.

  10. we know death is not only by age but age is one of d biggest determiners. Buhari will likely take his vice from d south. When he goes d Yar'Adua way d power will still return to d south. When will my northern pipo learn wisdom? Buhari will win but he is a bad choice for sure.

  17. Among the few that call for Jonathan am yet to see their reason for his return, in all honesty insecurity aside, Jonathan has done nothing to improve the life of an average Nigerian well maybe his cronies. If you fools that think Nigeria should elect our leader base on religion and ethnics sentiment then you have got it wrong this time. Has for me and my household our vote is for change and Buhari is the change period.

  18. I hate to say this, but Jonathan need to get the F*** out of there.

  19. Voting for GEJ would be like walking with your eyes wide open into a ditch! A leader who treats stealing and corruption with a pinch of salt is surely not worth my vote ...A leader who goes dancing in Kano shortly after the abduction of innocent children needs to be reassessed. To cut the long story short. At this point Nigeria need a CHANGE. .. A NEW LEASE OF LIFE . GEJ has shown us the limits of his capabilities. .. He should step aside honourably.

  21. Please Al Matosky is not an Igbo man, i am an Igbo lady and Buhari is the way, besides jonathan is not an igbo man so why would anonymous whoever assume matosky is igbo because he is supporting jonathan. please you people should leave Ndi Igbo alone, the more you envy us and try to do us evil, the more God is blessing us in a very cruel country. It is time you learned that we are the Jews of Nigeria. Meanwhile let us all vote Buhari for the good of our country and the future of our children except you love money more than your children or you are a sadist then vote for jonathan.
