#NigeriaDecides2023: Tinubu loses to Atiku at Ribadu’s ward, Aisha Buhari family’s polling unit



Bola Tinubu lost to Atiku Abubakar at the ward of Nuhu Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in Bako ward, Yola south LGA of Yola state.

Tinubu is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while Atiku is the flag-bearer of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ribadu is the director of field operations of the APC presidential campaign council.

Results of the presidential election held on Saturday showed that while the ex-EFCC chairman won his polling unit, he could not garner enough support to win the ward for Tinubu.

The PDP got 2,195 votes at the ward to defeat APC with 1,530 votes.

In the same vein, Tinubu also lost at the polling unit of the family of Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The polling unit 006 is located in Mbamoi ward, Yola south LGA, and belongs to the first lady’s family.

It was gathered that Modi Halilu, Aisha’s younger brother, and Aishatu Binani, APC’s governorship candidate in the state, also voted at the polling unit.

In spite of this, PDP won at the polling unit with 129 votes which surpassed APC’s 101 votes.

Meanwhile, Mustapha Salihu, the suspended national vice-chairman for the APC in the north-east, also lost his polling unit to the PDP.

PDP got 220 votes at the polling unit 001 located in Rumde ward in Yobe North LGA to defeat APC which garnered 143 votes.

A source told TheCable that the defeat of the APC in the presidential election in the area has to do with “protest votes against the trio of Aisha Buhari, Modi, and Ribadu”.

The source alleged that the trio was behind an “unrelenting conspiracy to undermine the only APC gubernatorial female candidate of the party Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani”.
