The Chief Retiring Officer for the exercise, Barrister Nasir Juju announced that about 1, 049 delegates were accredited to participate in the elections which was held at the Legbo Kutigi International Conference Centre, Minna.

While announcing the results, Juju said Bago had the highest votes in the elections held in Minna, adding that “Therefore, I, Barr Nasir Ibrahim as the chairman Electoral committee, declare Hon Umaru Bago as the winner of the elections.”

In his acceptance speech, Bago appreciated God for the success of the elections.

He equally called on the party supporters to suspend celebration of his victory at the party’s Primary election, saying “We are not yet there, we still have work ahead to do. It is my prayer that APC forms the next Government in the state.”

Bago also thanked the state Governor, Abubakar Bello for providing a level playing field for all the aspirants, while calling on other aspirants and their campaign committees to kindly sheath their swords for the good of the party and residents of the state.

It is okay if you don’t complete things and goals as fast as other people do; we are all different people with different levels of skills and it’s okay to go at your own pace.

Bago has never lost any election since he contested for the House of Reps about 12 years ago. He knows politics well.

Lolo has failed Niger. He failed Niger so much so that he even failed in his bid to anoint a successor, Malagi.

As for Bago, I like him. He has done fairly well for the people of Chanchaga, in which Minna is a part of. But, one thing I don't like is how he plays his politics. The thuggery we witness sometimes in Minna town is often attributed to him.

It would be a close battle between him and Kantigi of the PDP. From what I've gathered, Kantigi has a lot of following out of Minna. Their choices of Deputy Governor might also do their cause more good or damage it.
