Victory in the North as Atiku Bags Jigawa and Kano
Till today, the biggest miracle of Nigeria is the freeness and fairness of the Port-Harcourt PDP convention. This has since united every other PDP aspirant under Atiku’s candidacy, including the former Governors of Jigawa and Kano State; Alhaji Sule Lamido, and Musa Rabiu Kwankwaso respectively. Now that a notable Northerner, North-Easterner, Fulani and Muslim for that matter is contesting against Buhari, Jigawa and Kano have firmly fallen into the warm hands of the PDP. This is seen in the numerous rallies conducted by the PDP in the state and of course the loss of Goodwill by the Buhari administration in the State concerning the duo of hunger and security.
Musa Kwankwaso has been given the role of conquering Kano State with his Kwankwassiyya movement, which has seen massive boost following Ganduje’s bribery scandal. This amounts to no other outcome than a repeat of the Yaradua hurricane of 2007 which saw even Buhari scrambling for votes in Daura. Adamawa? Atiku won the state in 2007 under a smaller party, and surely will win the state under PDP, in 2019.
Just like every other myth, Buhari is seen to have never lost a state in the north since he started contesting. This has since been debunked with the Yaradua massive victory. Now that Jigawa, Kano and Adamawa are in the bag, what next?
