With over 1,000 ballots sorted, out of the 7, 214votes at the ongoing All Progressives Congress,APC, presidential primary at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, a former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, has earned more ballots than his four other challengers.
Coming a distant second is the Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, who seems to be performing way beyond expectation, and appears to have earned more votes than former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who is generally regarded as the most experienced politician among the lot.
The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, is also putting put some contest, but he clearly lies in a distant fourth position behind Mr. Atiku, who seems to have received the third highest votes at the moment.
Not entirely surprising in fifth place is the Publisher of Leadership Newspapers, Sam Nda-Isaiah, who clearly is the least experienced politician of the lot.
Mr Nda-Isaiah is yet to get a ballot so far as at the time of this report.
It is however early to award victory to any of the candidates at this time as there are still thousands of ballots to count.
Sorting is still ongoing and PREMIUM TIMES will continue to update you with happenings at the venue.
