Vice President Yemi Osinbajo delivered some major votes for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the presidential election which held on 23 February.
Prof Osinbajo who is seeking reelection alongside President Muhammadu Buhari had vigourously met with Christian leaders across the country before and during the campaign train.
In Ikenne where he hails from, the ruling APC garnered 10, 184 votes with the main contender, Atiku Abubakar and his party, Peoples Democratic Party getting 8,509 votes.
In Christian communities across the North, South South, South East and South West of Nigeria, APC also garnered big results almost ensuring the reelection bid of his party.
At Prof Osinbajo’s polling unit in Lagos, the APC party agent explained to journalists that his party were overwhelming favourite to win but that some of the electorate were not happy with the anti-corruption fight of the government.
“Some of the persons living in these highbrow areas aren’t too happy with the anti-corruption fight of the federal government and some had even shared their grievances with me this morning,” he told journalists off the record on the day of the election.
He explained that privileges should not be reserved for the elites alone but for all Nigerians which is what the APC government is trying to entrench.
The new Nigeria places more emphasis on the middle and low class, we cannot continue to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. Hopefully everyone will key into this mentality and drive the country to the Next Level.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC will address Nigerians and give updates on the election. A winner is expected to be announced by Monday but the APC are favourites given results that have been shared by party agents.
