Four contenders have withdrawn their candidacy in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Jesse David Tanko, in anticipation of the by-election for the Chikun Constituency of the Kaduna State House of Assembly.
Among those relinquishing their candidacy are Zipporah Samuel Bijeh of the Accord party, David Sunday of the Zenith Labour Party, Idris Inuwa representing the Social Democratic Party, and David Ogah Batholomew from the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Idris Inuwa disclosed the development during his address to the press in Kaduna on Thursday.
Speaking on behalf of the four candidates, he explained, “In view of the sterling leadership qualities so far expressed by Governor Uba Sani in Kaduna State, we are of the conviction that with APC at the State House of Assembly, lobbying for projects and other things that will benefit our people will be easier to get, hence our coming together to support the APC candidate to victory in the coming election on Saturday.”
He added, “We entered the contest to represent Chikun, for our people to enjoy the dividends of democracy, and among the candidates, we believe the APC candidate can do that.
“So we felt the need to support him to win the election. Governor Uba Sani has so far demonstrated unparalleled commitment to develop the state and carry everyone along, we need a House member to be in the same political party with the governor for easy enjoyment of the dividends of democracy in our constituency.”
