Nigeria: Shekarau warned candidates

Kano State Governor Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau has warned candidates vying for the council leadership in the November 14 elections to desist from money politics as anyone found promoting the vice will not be allowed to participate. The governor also charged the ANPP leadership and other stakeholders in the state to present only credible candidates during the elections, saying there was the need for the party and delegates participating in the primary elections to ensure the presentation of reliable people in the management of communities at the grass roots. Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, while swearing in newly appointed sole administrators for the 44 local governments in Kano last Friday, advised that the delegates should shun any forms of favouritism in the process of fielding any candidate.
