Fani-Kayode mocks South East for giving Atiku less votes than South West


Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has blamed the people of the South East for contributing to the loss of candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the February 23 presidential election.

Taking to his verified Twitter handle on Sunday morning, Fani-Kayode queried the South East’s 1.67 million votes for Atiku despite the PDP vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi coming from the region.

He noted that the South West, which has less stake in the Atiku/Obi ticket as neither candidate is from the region, contributed 1.75 million votes to the ticket.

The Herald can report that the South East region has 10,057,130 registered voters in the 2019 general election, while the South East has 16,292,212.

But Fani-Kayode explained that the South East should have given the Atiku/Obi ticket more votes.

“In the 2019 presidential election South East gave Atiku Abubakar and Peter OBI 1.67 million votes whilst the South West gave the same Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi’s ticket a whooping 1. 75million votes, notwithstanding that the geo- political region had no direct stake in that ticket,” he said.
