Sokoto assembly APC lawmakers donate form to Guber aspirant

THE twelve All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers of the Sokoto State House of Assembly on Friday purchased and donated the governorship nomination and expression form to a frontline and one of the hot contenders of the party’s Governorship ticket, Hon.Farouk Malami Yabo.

The form was picked for the aspirant in the afternoon in Abuja.

The lawmakers gesture is coming two days after the state chapter of the party resolved at its meeting to adopt the Indirect method of primaries.

Similarly, the move seem to be a clear signal that the aspirant may have garnered for himself the unshaken support of the legislators to sail through at the upcoming primaries.

Yabo is said to be one of the three contenders believed to be eyeing the state number one seat ahead of the 2019 polls.

However, others believed to be jostling for the position within the party include sitting Deputy Governor, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto and former Minister of Transport/ Youths and Sport, Yusuf Suleiman who recently defected to the party.

Accordingly, Yabo is coming from same Southern senatorial zone with Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal while Suleiman and Aliyu Sokoto are from the Eastern and Central zones respectively.
