Justice Minister Abubakar Malami has declared interest in the Kebbi gubernatorial race.
“If God in his mercies permits, and all goes well, I will as a politician contest the governorship of Kebbi state. I am seeking your support,” declared Mr Malami in vernacular.
Mr Malami’s declaration was captured in a video posted by Arise TV on Tuesday.
Stressing that he has a sterling record of being loyal, the nation’s attorney general solicited the support of Kebbi residents to realise his governorship ambition.
“I want to announce that I will contest indeed, and as such, I am counting on your prayers and support so that we can all work and survive the race together,” he added. “I have no history of betrayal, and I won’t betray you, people. I will work for you.”
Prior to his announcement, the AGF has been fighting relentlessly for the deletion of section 84(12) of the Electoral Act, which mandates the resignation of political appointees seeking political office in an election.
