Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has been defeated in a two-horse race for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives of Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu Federal Constituency of Kano State.
Bashir Ahmad recently resigned his job as President Muhamnadu Buhari’s special assistant on social media to contest the ticket of the All Progressives Congress House of Reps ticket in Kano State.
His challenger is the incumbent, Abdullahi Mahmood Gaya, the lawmaker representing the Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu Federal Constituency of Kano State in the National Assembly.
Mahmood Gaya secured 109 votes in the poll to trounce Bashir Ahmad who got a paltry 16 votes.
However, in a post on his social media page, Bashir Ahmad lamented the use of thugs in elections stating that: “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 I want to compete with the best, thugs shouldn’t be part of any election. A dakace mu!”
Before the contest, Bashir Ahmad tweeted: “Our primary election is tomorrow, I am contesting against the incumbent MHR, even though the majority of you have no business in the process, but I have important requests, kindly include me in your prayers, words of encouragement, and best wishes, PLEASE. May Allah grant us victory!”
