Nigeria decides 2019 Results, Updates, Top Stories of presidential, NASS elections from Rivers, Imo, Kwara, Kano, Akwa Ibom, others…
All is now set for the 2019 presidential and National Assembly elections in Nigeria.
Nigerians have now queued up at the various polling units in Imo, Rivers, Kwara, Kano, Akwa Ibom and other States in the country to elect their leaders for the next fours years.
Imo is one of the States with heightened political tension. While the State Governor, Rochas Okorocha is in the race for Imo West Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, some of his family members are also running for various positions.
Okorocha is currently at loggerheads with the APC national body.
The presidential and National Assembly elections will be held in the 36 states of the country including the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
In Rivers, the battle will be between the Governor of the State, Chief Nyesom Wike, who would want to secure a victory for his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the Transportation Minister and former Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, while in Akwa Ibom, it would between Governor Udom Emmanuel and his former godfather, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
In Kwara State, Senate President and former Governor, Dr Bukola Saraki will sweat it out with his former party, the All Progressives Congress, APC led by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
For Kano, the State is seen as a major decider for presidential elections. Although the state is controlled by the APC, with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje in charge, the PDP with the return of Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, is surely a party to beat.
