How lawmakers are voting at the PDP presidential primaries

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2018 presidential primaries ahead of the 2019 presidential elections seem to be the most unpredictable one in the history of the Nigeria politics, but not all that unpredictable after all, with the way things are looking, we may have gotten an idea of how the polls are going to turn out.

With his influence in the senate, The Senate President, Bukola Saraki is showing how smart he is becoming at the primaries. So far things are turning out to be on his favour.

A brief analysis by Demola Rewaju and some of the reports by our corespondents on ground shows that Saraki has more human resources than other candidates.

Other top candidates hoping tot get the slot include former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and Governor Aminu Tambuwa.

Some few things to note in the ongoing PDP presidential primaries in Port Harcourt – By Demola Rewaju

In terms of ground game – Atiku is solid: banners, posters, all that. In terms of Human Resources – Saraki’s people are everywhere in their various colours of t-shirts so easily identifiable. Tambuwal though is very much in the air – very much.

What I mean is this: those pushing against Tambuwal on social media seem to have created an air of anointing over him and stray delegates seem to think he is the endorsed candidate.

Below is a chart on how the primaries may likely play out;
