The development is contained in a statement jointly signed by the Ward Chairman, Ibrahim Abdullahi-Na-Mazaba and Secretary, Nasiru Aliyu and issued to newsmen in Birnin Kebbi on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the aspirant had initially emerged winner of the party ticket for Kebbi Central Senatorial District unopposed during a primary election earlier conducted.

However, the PDP national headquarters  ordered a fresh primary election after Senator Adamu Aliero defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress Congress (APC) to the PDP.
