The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday identified Sadiq Wali as the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in Kano State.
The state chapter of the party had held parallel primary elections producing a former minister of foreign affairs, Ambassador Aminu Wali and Muhammad Abacha, son of late former Head of State, General Sani Abacha.
Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Professor Riskuwa Shehu, had said on June 30 that the commission monitored only the primary conducted by the Shehu Wada Sagagi-led state executive which produced Abacha as its governorship candidate.
In the list of gubernatorial candidates displayed yesterday at the INEC state office, Wali’s name was displayed.
INEC spokesman in Kano, Ahmad Adam Maulud, said the commission submitted the outcome of the primary election it monitored to the national headquarters.
He said what was, however, pasted on the wall on Friday was what was sent back from the national headquarters.
“We have sent what we did to our national headquarters and what we pasted today (Friday) came from them directly.”
“Whoever wishes to seek any clarification should contact the body of his or her national party for any information,” he said.
