There is evidence that Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defeated President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2019 presidential election, according to the Governor of Bauchi state, Bala Mohammed.
Buhari was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and is into his second term.
He won ahead of Atiku, who is a former Vice President.
But Mohammed has claimed Nigerians are not unaware of what happened during the last general elections, adding that the PDP has learnt its lessons.
“The general impression within the party and within the country is that we actually won the election and that we lost to a lot of fraud, to a lot of manipulations that were perpetrated by either the electoral umpire or by the security operatives.
“We do not want to be the whipping boys, we have looked inward to see what prevented us from winning the election. We have a lot of evidence, which we tendered but was not accepted.
“The issue now is that we know we are all Nigerians. We know the nook and cranny of Nigeria. We know what happened in 2019,” he said on Channels Television.
Aminu Masari, Katsina State Governor, has lent his voice to the southerners to produce the next president in 2023.
