Barely four days ago, photos and videos of children voting in the Kano state LG elections surfaced on the internet and the Governor Ganduje made attempts to deny the reports. Now the Governor is out with another statement to deliver 5m votes if Buhari contests in 2019. What is he trying to say? Deliver like he is going to convince 5Million Nigerians to vote or use his power over their votes?
Despite the glaring process of secret balloting as seen in the videos, Governor Ganduje in response claimed the photos and videos were from children in a school assembly. Just in case you missed it then, INEC put up a disclaimer to dissociate its regulation from the LG elections where APC won all of the 44 seats in the state. Considering this, what then is Governor Ganduje’s point?
Looking back at the 2015 presidential election, the total votes from Kano state was 2,128,821 votes with 1,903,999 from APC. With this, get 5 million votes from Kano State in the next election is as good as getting 10 times the possible population of voters following statistics of the last election. Hence how else can Governor Ganduje deliver such a massive vote in 2019 without using of unqualified voters? Express your passion in the comment section.
