gmb - Drama as Bauchi Women chant 'Sai Baba', kiss ballot paper before Voting

Some female voters at a polling unit in Bauchi caused a stir when each of them kissed her ballot paper and shouted “Sai Baba” before casting her vote.

The drama, involving four women, occurred at the veterinary polling unit of Dawaki Ward in Bauchi metropolis.

Their action raised suspicions that the women might have mistaken the Bauchi South Senatorial by-election for the forthcoming general election, which will feature President Muhammadu Buhari as a contestant.

“Sai Baba” is the common phrase used by supporters of President Buhari while campaigning for him.

Presiding Officer in charge of the polling unit, Miss Faiza Mohammed, however, told newsmen that the turnout of women was impressive, with some of them, over-enthusiastic.

“The women are very excited and eager to cast their votes; some of them were kissing their ballot papers and shouting ‘sai Baba’ before casting their votes.

“I do not know which ‘Baba’ they are referring to,” she said.
