Jonathan Loses at Aso Rock Polling Unit as Sambo Also Lost His Polling Unit in Kaduna
President Goodluck Jonathan has lost one of the two polling units situated right inside the Presidential Villa to his All Progressives Congress challenger, Muhammadu Buhari.
Reports available indicate that in polling unit 022, Mr. Buhari garnered 348 votes to Mr. Jonathan’s 302.
At the second polling unit inside the villa, 021, Mr. Jonathan scored 293 votes while Mr. Buhari got 265.
Similarly in the Senatorial election, the APC scored 260 votes at PU 021 and 337 at PU 022 as against PDP’s 286 and 281 respectively.
In the House of Representatives election results for the same units, APC scored 255 votes at PU 021 and 334 votes at PU 22. The PDP got 254 votes at PU 021 and 241 votes at PU 022.
Mr. Jonathan won the two polling units in 2011.
The president does not vote in any of the two locations, but most of those who do are believed to be his aides, presidential villa staff and loyalists.
Defeat in those polling units does not necessarily translate to Mr. Jonathan losing the election.

The results were announced by the presiding officer Abdulfatah Ali.
