With 1,903,999 votes, Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated the Peoples Democratic Party’s Goodluck Jonathan who had 215,779 votes in the North’s most populous state.

“The northern Nigerian votes that were waiting to make up the difference which either of the two other runners-up was hoping to get, [it] turned out that they are not getting it,” Baba-Ahmed said during a live appearance on Channels Television on Tuesday.

“The heavy punchers – Kano, for example – is now a watershed of what its votes used to be. In 2015, the 1.9 million votes of Kano, nobody can aspire to have that which of course Buhari punched Jonathan with the final blow. Nobody is going to get that in Kano.”

The LP vice presidential candidate argued that other battle zones in the North are Kaduna and Katsina.

Other factors he believed were working in his party’s favour include the rise of the youth in his home state of Kaduna, the increasing awareness of uniting Nigeria, and the non-indigenes all over Northern and Central Kaduna.

“We have pulled a lot of weight beyond the comprehension of the two runners-up,” he added.
