Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential flag bearer, Muhammadu Buhari has lost in the race to becoming Nigeria’s president the second time already, given that former VP Atiku Abubakar and some Northern leaders have withdrawn their support for the APC – the claim which has not been confirmed.

Punch reports that, a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti, the Governor said that the new development has deflated the ego of the opposition party to the extent that it has tactically conceded defeat few days to the March 28 presidential election.

He revealed that the Northern leaders terminated their support after realising that Buhari would be made to short-change the North. He claimed the development caused distress in the APC camp.

Fasoye also said that Atiku and his supporters were already making their way back to the PDP and that the North had seen the deceit in APC South-west leaders in pushing forward Buhari, even against the man’s interest.
