Senator Shehu Sani has lost the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship ticket for Kaduna State after securing only two votes at the party primary which held on Wednesday, May 25.
In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, Sani shared the outcome of the primary and congratulated the winner.
“The Kaduna PDP Governorship primaries has been concluded. I lost and Honourable Isah Ashiru won. I wish to congratulate him. Two Delegates voted for me without giving them a dime; unfortunately, I don’t know who they are, so that I can appreciate these clean votes. We look forward.”he tweeted
The winner, Ashiru, is a former member of the House of Representatives.
Sani had earlier vowed not to pay delegates to vote for him during the primary.
In a Facebook post, Sani had written;
”We are going to the Governorship primaries today. My position is clear;I will NOT pay delegates to vote for me. I don’t believe this is the path our society should continue to thread.Our problems can never be solved by leaders who emerged through a market bidding system or auction.
Whether I record any vote or zero votes I’m ok.Our society criminalised ransom payment but embraces payment system for its leadership.
I welcome the Delegates to Kaduna.”
