Despite Defection To PDP – INEC Lists Shekarau As NNPP’s Senatorial Candidate

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has listed Ibrahim Shekarau as the senatorial candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Gatekeepers News reports that Shekarau dumped the PDP in August citing injustice metted out to him by the Presidential candidate of the party, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

“All the agreements we had with him were betrayed by Kwankwaso and his boys and they did not accommodate one single person from my camp,” Shekarau had said.

“We reached an agreement to accommodate my supporters into various elective positions in the party, but until now, the committee set up could not accommodate one single person apart from the senatorial slot given to me.

“I will never be a party to injustice. My integrity is utmost and not any political position that will make me compromise it and that of my people. Nobody will use position or money against my integrity.”

Rising from a meeting on Tuesday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) approved the final list of candidates for the 2023 elections.

The list includes the name, party, educational qualification, and age of each candidate for seats on the presidency and national assembly.
