Danladi Bako, a Co-Director of Strategic Communications for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, has assured that the North will deliver 12 million votes for Bola Ahmed Tinubu next year.
Speaking with reporters, Bako said: ”As far as 2023 election is concerned, the North will deliver 12 million votes to APC.
“I believe there is no serious candidate from the North that can bring the votes that Buhari normally brings.”
The former Director-General of National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) noted that Buhari displayed his usual followership at the launch of APC manifesto in Jos, Plateau.

Bako, who is also Sokoto State commissioner for information, said the party will get more than 25 per cent in 36 states and FCT.
”There is no problem with this as governors in Northwest have won election twice and they will ensure landslide victory for APC,” he said.
He assured that Tinubu would also record victory in Sokoto State especially with the support of the president, saying, “Buhari remains extremely popular in the north.
”The president is extremely popular and his opinion matters a lot in elections, while the other candidates are not from the region.
”So, the APC presidential candidate will garner enough votes to win in the Northwest and Nigeria in general.”
Bako said that Tinubu had always identified with the people of Sokoto state by visiting to sympathise with them whenever they had calamities like flood, death or fire incidents.
”Tinubu will always visit the state, sympathise with the government and people of the state, while he always donated money to the victims,” he said.
