ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Nigerian economist and former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kingsley Moghalu, has predicted the candidates that will win the majority votes in selected states during the presidential election.
According to Moghalu in a series of tweets on Friday, the Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP) Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso will win majority votes in Kano state, while the Labour Party flag bearer, Peter Obi will likely win in Rivers States.
He wrote, “I predict @KwankwasoRM will win majority of Kano votes in the presidential election. @officialABAT will likely win in Lagos, and @PeterObi will likely win in Rivers. Three of the four most populous voting states in Nigeria, this scenario leaves the election outcome uncertain.
“Anyone who tells you who will win the presidential election “for sure” is deceiving you -or perhaps himself or herself. That’s a good thing for democracy. Let the politicians sweat. We can only hope that they sweat to govern as much as they sweat to win,” he wrote. (Daily Independent)
