Maiduguri—Former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman, Ali Sheriff, who is now a chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, said Borno State had fulfilled its promise of delivering most of the votes cast during the Saturday general elections to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State, spoke to journalists at the venue of presidential collation centre in Maiduguri, insisting he had no doubt President Buhari was coasting to victory.
He said he led a separate campaign, aside the state campaign council of APC, to ensure that the President got a second term.
Sheriff said the state had not only delivered maximum votes for the president but also won all the senatorial and House of Representatives seats for the party.
He said: “So far, the results that we have got from the field are encouraging, and we are 100 percent sure that all our candidates, especially our three senators and House of Representatives will soon be declared winners.
“And if these are in favour of APC, it means the president will get substantial votes from Borno State and we believe our result will be more than that of 2015.”
He said he had no iota of doubt on President Buhari’s victory as he envisaged the same favourable results from other parts of the country.
