The name and credentials of Sadiq Wali has been pasted as the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

This has led to confusion among members of the party loyal to the state executive led by Shehu Sagagi.

Daily Trust reports that the crisis in the Kano chapter of the opposition party led to parallel primary elections, which produced the sons of former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Aminu Wali, and that of late former Head of State, General Sani Abacha.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Professor Riskuwa Shehu, had told journalists on June 30 that the commission monitored only the primaries conducted by the Shehu Wada Sagagi-led state executive which produced Abacha as its governorship candidate.

But with the list of gubernatorial candidates pasted nationwide on Friday at INEC’s state offices, Daily Trust observed that Wali’s name and that of his deputy, Yusuf Dambatta, were displayed on the wall at Kano INEC office.

Reacting to the development, the INEC Kano state Public Relations Officer, Ahmad Adam Maulud, said the commission at the state level submitted what the outcome of the primary election it monitored to the national headquarters.

He said what was, however, pasted on the wall on Friday was what was sent back from the national headquarters.

“We have sent what we did to our national headquarters and what we pasted today (Friday) came from them directly.”

“Whoever wishes to seek any clarification should contact the body of his or her national party for any information,” he told Daily Trust.
