The immediate past Deputy Governor of Zamfara State and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship aspirant in the 2023 general elections, Mahdi Aliyu-Gusau, has withdrawn from the race.
Gatekeepers News reports that Aliyu-Gusau made the announcement before the commencement of the party’s governorship primaries.
He urged his supporters, delegates and party leaders to vote for Dr Dauda Lawal-Dare to clinch the governorship ticket during the primaries.
Aliyu-Gusau thanked his supporters for the massive support he enjoyed during and after his days as the Deputy governor of the state.
With Gusau’s withdrawal, the three aspirants, Lawal-Dare, Abubakar Nakwada and Wadatau Madawaki, will slug it out for the governorship ticket of the PDP during the primaries.
