Senator Shehu Sani secured two votes in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primaries on Thursday but said over 300 delegates have called him claiming they are the two people that voted for him.
Shehu in a tweet on his official account revealed that he did not bribe any delegate to vote for him but is surprised that 300 delegates are calling him that they want to see him after the primaries.
“Two delegates voted for me without paying them kobo; but I have received over 300 calls from different delegates claiming that they are the two that voted for me and want to come and see me. See me se wahala abeg,” he said in his tweet.
Chronicle NG reports that former House of representatives member, Isah Ashiru, has clinched the PDP governorship ticket in Kaduna.
Ashiru defeated four other aspirants including a former head of National Emergency Management Agency, Sani Sidi, the former governor of the state Ramalan Yero.
