The Senator representing Yobe East Senatorial District, Bukkar Ibrahim, has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress not to assume that the North-East geopolitical zone will vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 like it did in 2015.
The senator said the issues for which people of the North-East voted for Buhari and APC had not been addressed. According to him, they are getting worse.
Ibrahim, whose wife, Khadijat, is currently the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said the North-East should not be taken for granted “since it is not a must for the zone to support Buhari.”
He said, as the 2019 election approaches, things are no longer the way they were in 2015 when the APC rode to power on a cloud of euphoria, believing that things will change for better.
Also a Senatorial aspirant Joshua Sanda said it is not fair for the party to have sold forms to them only to give out automatic tickets.
