The electoral committee set up by the National Working Committee of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to conduct primaries in Kaduna State has issued Certificates of Return to the elected senatorial candidates from the three zones.
The certificates were issued on Monday by the Chairman of the electoral committee in the state, Mathew Idouriyekemwen, despite the controversy surrounding the senatorial primary for Kaduna central district, where the incumbent senator, Shehu Sani, insisted that he was given an automatic ticket by the party’s NWC.
The senatorial candidates are Uba Sani for Kaduna central, Suleiman Abdu-Kwari for Kaduna North and Bala Bantex for Kaduna south.
The committee also presented certificates to winners for the House of Representatives and State Assembly elections.
In his remarks, the electoral committee chairman said the primary was free and fair and has the backing of the party’s national leadership.
