PDP supporters blame leaders for party’s defeat

Kwara -  Supporters of Peoples Democratic Party in Kwara State have blamed the party’s crushing defeat by the All Progressives Congress in the Saturday’s elections on the lack of unity among its political stalwarts in the state.

APC cleared all the three senatorial districts and six federal constituencies in the state.

Its presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), also polled 302 146 votes to beat the PDP candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan, to a distant second with 132 602 votes.
