Muhammadu Buhari, former military head of state, is likely to emerge flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential election.

As at the time of filing this report, Buhari was clearly ahead of four other aspirants participating in the presidential primary of the party, still going on at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

The other aspirants are Rabiu Kwankwaso, governor of Kano state; Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state; Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president and Sam Nda-Isaiah, publisher of Leadership.

Boss Mustapha, the electoral official who presided over the election, had reached an agreement with the agent of all the aspirants that the 40 ballot boxes used for the primary would be emptied into a big box, while five boxes would be used to sort out the votes in an alphabetic order.

The picture and names of each of the candidates were pasted on the boxes.

However, the official announced the names of the aspirants while sorting the ballot papers.

Though the first set of votes counted was a tie between Buhari and Kwankwoso, the rate at which Buhari’s name kept recurring placed him far ahead of Atiku, whose name as been the second most-recurring.

The vote sorting process is still ongoing.

    If GMB wins the APC ticket, then it is a walkover for PDPs’ GEJ. Repeat of 2014.
