A top contender for Kaduna State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial ticket, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi at the Kaduna PDP Gubernatorial Primaries has arrived the venue of the event.
He arrived the Kaduna International Trade Fair Complex, at about 7:30pm, dressed in blue tunic.
Hunkuyi, who is a respected grassroots politician was said to have been behind the emergence of an All Progressives Congress (APC) government in Kaduna State.
He has however, publicly regretted bringing Governor Nasir el-Rufai to power and has vowed to contribute to ensuring he is replaced by a PDP governor in 2019.
Hunkuyi’s defection from the APC was celebrated by the PDP, seeing his joining their fold as a big boost towards reclaiming power in Kaduna State.
As at time of filing this report around 8:51pm, only delegates from six states have voted out of 23 local government areas that make up the state.
Other Gubernatorial aspirants spotted earlier at the venue include former Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero (Dallatun Zazzau), Honourable Isah Ashiru Kudan and Dr. Mohammed Sani Bello (Mainan Zazzau).
