An All Progressives Congress supporter on Twitter, Kayode Ogundamisi, disagreed with Special Adviser on Media to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Salihu Yakasai on Monday, over claims by Gadnuje’s aide that the South-West had failed to “perform.”
Yakasai lamented the “lower-than-expected” votes President Muhammadu Buhari had gathered so far in the South-West.
The South-West, which has the second highest number of voters and has six All Progressives Congress governors in all its six states, was expected to give bloc votes to Buhari.
However , figures released by the Independent National Electoral Commission show otherwise.
Tweeting through his handle @dawisu, he wrote, “I am terribly disappointed and saddened by the South-West results for the APC despite being biggest beneficiary of this government both in terms of juicy appointments and projects (they even got a whole new rail line from Lagos to Ibadan) yet APC narrowly won, shame.”
Ganduje’s aide warned the South-West that the North may not give bloc votes in 2023 due to this development.
Reacting to the defeat of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, who failed to win the Oyo-South senatorial election, Yakasai urged the Yoruba to stop overreacting over his post and admit the truth.
Yakasai added, “Instead of insulting me up and down, the South-West APC needs to do some soul searching inwards ahead of 2023. There will be no bloc vote from the North for any party because Buhari will not be on the ballot paper. The earlier this conversation starts, the better for us all. #Peace.
