Atiku Won 2019 Election By 2 Million Votes – Kperogi Opens Up
Media Scholar, Prof. Farooq Kperogi, has said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, won the 2019 election.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Buhari was declared the winner of Nigeria’s election in February 2019 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The electoral commission said he polled 56 percent of the total votes.
Buhari, who first came to power in 2015 after defeating then-incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, defeated his main challenger Atiku, a former vice-president, by a margin of nearly four million votes in results announced by INEC.
Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) claimed 15,191,847 (56%) while Atiku received 11,262,978 (41%) of votes, according to the commission.
Writing recently in his weekly column, Kperogi, a US-based don, described Buhari’s triumph in the last presidential election as “fraudulent”.
