Bashir Ahmad, a former media aide to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has snubbed the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to support Labour Party’s Peter Obi.
Bashir, an APC aspirant, contested but failed to clinch the House of Representative ticket to represent Ajingi, Albasu, and Gaya Federal Constituency, last month.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Ahmad hailed Obi, and noted that he has an 80 per cent chance of victory in Katsina, Kaduna the Kano states.
He tweeted, “Let me confess, the name Peter Obi alone is a movement to beat, I was in Kano over the weekend and to my surprise everywhere is PO, nobody is talking about other candidates anymore and a friend told me that it’s a similar story in Katsina. LP is getting 75% – 80% in those states.
“A friend also just DMed me that PO is getting not less than 85% in Kaduna. Like I said he is everywhere in Kano and Katsina, so he doesn’t even have to waste his time to go to North-West for campaign, his soldiers take over the region. An 80% victory is assured! ✌🏾.”
