Baba-Ahmed withdraws from Kaduna PDP guber race


One of the governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna state, Sen. Datti Baba- Ahmed, has pulled out of the race less than than 24hours to the primary election.
The PDP governorship primaries is slated for Wednesday across the country.
In a short letter addressed to the Kaduna state Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Hassan Hyet, Baba-Ahmed, said happenings in the party are “inconsistent with his purpose in politics.”
He said first-hand reports available to him indicated that the PDP was yet to learn lessons.
Baba-Ahmed did not give details of reasons for withdrawing from the race, but it may not be unconnected with the huge amount spent by aspirants during the state assembly and House of Representatives primaries which held on Sunday.
He however said, he would remain loyal to the PDP, stressing that he will not join the APC.
“I consequently hereby respectfully withdraw from the 2023 governorship contest of Kaduna State under our great party the PDP.
“I however, remain loyal and supportive. I pray for the day we get our politics right for the sake of Nigeria,” he said.
With the withdrawal of Baba-Ahmed, five aspirants, will slug it out at the primary election on Wednesday.
