Count me out of ADC, PDP alliance–Katsina’s only female candidate.
Hajiya Hauwa Lawal Jibrin, the House of Assembly candidate for Katsina Local Government under the African Democratic Congress (ADC) has denied withdrawing from the race.
She also denied joining the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nor declaring support for its governorship candidate, Sen. Yakubu Lado and other candidates of the party as acclaimed by some ADC members led by the party’s governorship candidate, Mr Ibrahim Trader.
Jibrin, who is the only female candidate for the 2023 elections in Katsina State denied the allegation at a press conference held on Thursday in Katsina.
She said: “I want to state it emphatically that I, Hon. Hauwa Lawal Jibrin, the ADC House of Assembly candidate for Katsina Local Government, is not a party to the unholy alliance and I want my supporters and the electorate to know that I am still in the race.”
Describing the development as sad and shameful, she noted that she is not a transactional politician but one with the sole aim of championing the cause of the downtrodden, women and youths in the society.
“This trend is what I seek to reverse if I am elected as a member of the State House of Assembly on Saturday, March 18th,” she said.
She appealed to her teeming supporters, women and youths as well as all lovers of good governance across the state to vote for Dr Dikko Radda whom she described as the best among the governorship candidates.
