Former Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media Bashir Ahmad, has lost his bid to unseat Mahmud Gaya, lawmaker representing Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu constituency of Kano state in the House of Representatives.
Bashir lost his bid to secure the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 elections.
Gaya polled a total of 109 votes while Bashir could only secure 16 votes.
He stormed out of the venue of the exercise before the final results were announced and a winner declared.
Later on, he claimed that there were thugs at the place.
“As an aspirant, I left the venue of the primary election for Gaya, Ajingi and Albasu Federal Constituency, because of the security of our majority delegates. If I want to compete with the best, thugs shouldn’t be part of any election,” he wrote.
It is not clear if Bashir would be returning to Aso Rock to resume his job.
