#NigeriaDecides: Buhari, APC Win Aso Rock Polling Unit

Muhammadu Buhari-AccreditedThe All Progressives Congress on Saturday defeated the Peoples Democratic Party in one of the two polling units situated right inside the Presidential Villa.

Results from polling unit 022, indicated that the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, garnered 348 votes to President Goodluck Jonathan’s 302.

At the second polling unit inside the villa, 021, Mr. Jonathan, however, bounced back with 293 votes to Mr. Buhari’s 265.

Similarly in the Senatorial election, the APC scored 260 votes at PU 021 and 337 at PU 022 as against PDP’s 286 and 281 respectively.

In the House of Representatives election results for the same units, APC scored 255 votes at PU 021 and 334 votes at PU 22. The PDP got 254 votes at PU 021 and 241 votes at PU 022.

Although President Jonathan does not vote in any of the two units, most of those who do are believed to be his aides, presidential villa staff and loyalists.

Defeat in those polling units, however, does not necessarily mean President Jonathan is losing the elections in general as votes from other polling units nationwide are still being collated as of the time of this report.
