Special Adviser on media to president Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina has shared the discussion he had with Kaduna state Governor , Nasir EL- Rufai, ahead of the Nigeria’s presidential election.
However, some months before the 2019 general elections , I ran into Governor Nasir El- Rufai in the presidential villa , as he was going in to see the president. We greeted warmly and I asked if he could stop by my office on his way out . he said ” YES. The trend on social media, as how the election would go that made me worry , However I knew that El- Rufai was statistics at fingertips He was not a first class quantity surveyor for nothing .
Happening the governor turn up then my worries disappear he show me a result of Atiku wining but I have to wait for the media results. So I waited, the social media would account for just between 9 and 11 percent of the votes, however that percentage would go to one party alone. It would been shared between the two political leaders APC or PDP . it turn out unprophetic that Buhari of all progressive Congress ( APC ) defeated Atiku Abubakar of the people’s Democratic party ( PDP ) . Before I knew what was happen
