Kano North Central seat: Shekarau dares Kwankwaso, picks nomination form

Former Governor of Kano State, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, yesterday picked nomination forms, to contest for the Kano North Central Senatorial seat on the ticket of the All Progressives Congress.
This was confirmed by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, a media aide to the incumbent Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Yakasai posted an image of Shekarau posing with the forms on his Twitter page and wrote: “His Excellency Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau former Governor of Kano State has picked up the Senate Nomination Form for Kano Central Zone under the APC today.
“He will be replacing the former Gov of Kano and soon to be one term Senator, Kwankwaso in the forthcoming 2019 elections.
Aiki dai”.
Shekarau only joined the ruling party last Saturday, a day after Adams Oshiomhole, chairman of the APC and Ganduje met with him at his residence.
He told his supporters that he left the opposition party because they gave Rabiu Kwankwaso an edge over Kano PDP leaders after he defected.
