Vice President Namadi Sambo, who arrived in Kaduna at the weekend, is presently supervising the sharing of millions of Naira to individuals and groups in the state with sole aim of ensuring that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari loses to President Goodluck Jonathan, a credible source in the presidency has confirmed.
Kaduna is one of Buhari's strongholds along with Kano and the rest of the States of the North-west include Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Jigawa and Katsina.
The source added that Sambo in one of the meetings held with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates vowed that the party must do all it can to ensure President Jonathan wins the state that has been traditionally been Buhari's base since the 2003 presidential election.
He was quoted as saying it was critical for the PDP to use all the means at its disposal to win the election.
Among those receiving the largesse are traditional rulers, religious clerics and prominent youth leaders, saying it was being delivered to them with the condition they are to ensure Jonathan is elected. Sambo has also distributed exotic cars to some senior citizens of the state in what amounts to purchasing victory.
In the 2011 general elections, it will be recalled, Sambo lost to Buhari’s defunct Congress for Progressive Congress all the elections held in his immediate polling unit and his Kaduna North local government area.
