The February,16th Saturday’s election is getting closer and about 73 candidates would push around for just one political position of the president in the 36 states of the country.
The battle is clearly defined between two major frontrunners, specifically between the President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
However,President Buhari and his main challenger, Atiku Abubakar, stand out in the pack of the 73 presidential candidates as those to watch out for. This is on account of their visibility all over the country, the national spread and entrenched structure of their political parties, among other factors.
Lets talk about Lagos State, where 5 million voters would have to choose between the two candidates as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Lagos has announced that over 5.5 million Permanent Voter Cards had been collected out of 6, 566,136 registered voters in the state.
The election would take place in 245 Registration Areas (Wards), 8,462 polling units, and 3,669 voting points across the 20 Local Governments Areas of the state.
It should be noted, votes from osun,ogun, and Ekiti are expected to be closely contested. Lets wait and see.
