Mohammed Abacha

By Ahmed Abubakar

There is every indication that the Kano governorship race may eventually turn out to be a contest between the two sons of two former Generals that have also ruled the country previously.

Alhaji Abba Risqua Murtala Mohammed, Who told journalists at the PDP secretariat that he has submitted his nomination form for the state governorship would slug it out with some other contenders, prominent Mohammed Abacha.

Other contenders that have also indicated their interests for the governorship include: son of late General Sani Abacha, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Abacha and Mallam Salihu Sagir Takai, believed to be the anointed candidate of the two term governor of the state, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau.

Meanwhile, a political group, the Abuja Peoples Democratic Youth Forum for Integrity, has berated a former Public Relations Officer of the North-Central Zone of the party, Alhaji Saidu Garba Zuba, for refusing to quit his position despite his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a press release issued to Peoples Daily and signed by the forum’s publicity scribe, Musa Yakubu Abdul, the Abuja PDP Youth forum said it is a common knowledge that Alhaji Saidu Garba Zuba has left the PDP to APC, yet he has failed to relinquish his position.
