Buhari’s aide, Bashir Ahmad suffers heavy defeat as Gaya wins APC House of Reps ticket

The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has lost the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket to represent the Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu constituency of Kano state in the House of Representatives.

Ahmad, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), contested against the lawmaker who currently represents the constituency in the House of Representatives, Mahmud Gaya.

The results announced on Friday night showed he polled only 16 votes, while Gaya amassed 109.

Gaya has now secured the ruling party’s ticket to seek a second term in the 2023 elections.

Ahmad left the venue of the primary before the conclusion of the exercise.

He then posted on his Facebook page: “As an aspirant, I left the venue of the primary election for Gaya, Ajingi and Albasu Federal Constituency, because of the security of our majority delegates. If you want to compete with the best, thugs shouldn’t be part of any election.”
