Another chairmanship aspirant in the All Progressive Congress, dr. Sani Abdullahi Shinkafi has pulled out of the race four days to the national convention of the party.

Announcing his withdrawal on Monday, in Gusau, he said he withdrew from the race to respect the party and the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s (retd.) decision to zone the position to the North Central.
Shinkafi maintained that he decided to withdraw from the race as a party man who respected the rules of law and the party’s leaders.
“I am sure that most of you have been following the trends of activities of our party, the APC within the last two weeks
“The party has taken a position that the position of its national chairman should go to the North Central zone and I respect the supremely of the party.
“The President is the leader of the party and he has taken a position. I have always told you that I will contest if the position is zoned to my zone.

“That has been my statement always, and today they have taken a position. I respect the president as a person and as a president, he is my leader, therefore, I do not want to oppose him in any way or form,” Said Shinkafi.
Shinkafi was National Secretary of the All Progressive Grand Alliance and the party’s gubernatorial candidate in Zamfara state in 1999.
He later joined APC added that the President and the party’s leaders must have a reason for allowing the zoning of its chairmanship to the North Central.
“I was the National Secretary of the All Progressive Grand Alliance for many years, as such, I know the procedures and processes of a political party.
“I will abide by the party’s decision to exclusively zone its chairmanship position to the North Central.”
Shinkafi said he would not contest for an election that had clearly been zoned out of the North West.
