Kogi Polls: Nigerian Twitter Reacts To Audu's Emergence As APC's Candidate

That the former governor of Kogi state, Abubakar Audu emerged as the All Progressives Congress candidate for the state's gubernatorial election yesterday, August 30, is no more news.

What is however news is the fact that so many Nigerians seem not to be happy about Audu's emergence, with many berating the APC for even allowing him to contest the party's primaries.


Audu polled 1,109 in the primaries defeating his closest rival Yahaya Bello who received 703 votes. The chief returning officer for the primaries was Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

Interestingly, Audu has contested the governorship position of the state since the inception of the state, he contested in 1991, 1999 (which he won), 2003, 2007, 2011 and now 2015!
