Ace broadcaster and former Director General, Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Mr. Danlabi Bako has picked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial ticket for Sokoto North.

The late Senator Badamasi Maccido who died in the ADC plane crash on the 29th of October, represented the senatorial district on the platform of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).
Bako in a telephone chat with Sunday Sun, said he picked the ticket unopposed, even though it had to be formalised on Saturday.
