Marwa, who voted in Adamawa, however lauded members of the Buhari campaign team for their effective mobilisation for the re-election of the president.
“We thank millions of APC members and supporters who trooped out to vote on Feb. 23, 2019, despite the initial postponement.
“We thank our agents who stood their grounds to ensure our results were not tampered with and our mandate protectors who kept eagle eyes on the process,” Marwa said..
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, has claimed that Alhaji Buba Galadima, a spokesperson of Atiku presidential campaign, has been "kidnapped by masked security operatives, his whereabouts is unknown."
