Turaki: Why Northerners won’t give Buhari 12 Million votes in 2019 (REASONS)

A Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki has said that the north will not give president Muhammadu Buhari 12 million votes in the 2019 general elections.

Turaki, a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said this after he obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.

Turaki, who was represented by his Campaign Director of Publicity, Sola Atere, said, “What they are saying was way back in 2015. Things have changed. When you have not been in power, you can make all sorts of forecasts.

“Now the scenario has changed. Nigerians have seen to what extent the APC government can perform. And if you look at a lot of the projects they are laying claim to, they were established by the PDP. This is a government that has been making mistakes at every point in time.

Nigerians know all these things. The so-called 12 million voters they are laying claim to would have been reduced. Because if you look at the economic situation, where people are complaining that they cannot even have one square meal, how do you expect them to come out and aggravate votes up to 12 million for somebody who has been the architect of their misfortune?”
