Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has been accused of working against the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Adamawa State.
Incumbent and candidate of the APC, Jubrilla Bindow, was ousted by the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Ahmadu Fintiri.
Returning officer of the election, Prof. Andrew Haruna, who declared the result Thursday in Yola after the supplementary election in 44 units across 14 local government areas of the state, said Fintiri polled 376,552 votes to beat his closest rival, Bindow, who scored 336,386 votes.
However, Nigerians have fingered the wife of the president in the latest debacle to hit the ruling party.
Aisha’s brother Mahamood Halilu was controversially denied the APC candidate in the state – a move which was taken likely by the First Lady.
Following Thursday’s defeat, Nigerians believe Aisha may have worked for the opposition.
Here’s what few had to say on Twitter.
