All Progressives Congress national chairmanship aspirant Sani Shinkafi withdraws hours to screening.
Written by News Room on March 22, 2022
One of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairmanship aspirants, Dr Sani Shinkafi, has announced his withdrawal from the race.
Shinkafi, a former national secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), made the announcement at a press briefing on Monday night in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital.
He explained that his decision was to respect the party’s leadership which zoned the office of national chairman to the north-central region.
Since Zamfara did not fall within the states in the region, Shinkafi believes it is unnecessary to remain in the race.
The former APGA chieftain, who joined the APC alongside Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara in July 2021, insisted that he took the decision purely to show respect for the President.
