I am still G-7 leader-Shekarau


Leader of the G-7 faction of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano state, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau has denied reports insinuating he has dumped the group.

Shekarau, a former governor of Kano State issued the disclaimer on Thursday evening through his spokesman, Dr Sule Yau Sule.

The Spokesman said  reports indicating otherwise were mischievous.

Recalls that the party is torn between factions loyal to the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the G-7, which is led by Shekarau with the Supreme Court billed to deliver the final verdict on Friday on the legal tussle.

However, following the purchase of the nomination and expression of interest forms by Shekarau on Thursday for his return to the Senate, reports emanated on social media that the former governor has dumped the group and pitched his tent with the governor’s faction.

The reports had insinuated that the former governor was wooed with an automatic ticket for his return to the red chamber and had therefore abandoned the struggle he was championing.

However, Dr Sule Yau Sule told Daily Trust late Thursday that the reports were nothing but the handiwork of mischief-makers.

He said before Shekarau obtained his nomination and expression of interest forms, other members of the group that also desire to pursue political ambitions have started obtaining the forms.

He said this was because even as the Supreme Court was yet to deliver its verdict in their appeal, they figured that they had to take steps especially as the purchasing of the forms was earlier scheduled to close on Friday before it was later extended.

“His Excellency (Shekarau) is still the bonafide leader of the G-7 and there is no action he or any of the group members take that is not known to all other members,” Sule said.
