The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has given automatic tickets to Senator Shehu Sani, Suleiman Abdul Kwari and Barnabas Yusuf Bala.
Before now, Sani, who represents Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, had kicked against the decision of the party in the state to adopt indirect primaries.
Sani had also declined to step down for other APC aspirants scrambling for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District ticket.
The aspirants were Ibrahim Usman (Sardauna Badarawa); Shamsu Shehu Giwa; Gen. Mohammed Sani Saleh; and Uba Sani, a Special Adviser to Governor Nasir el-Rufai.
However, the party’s leaders after a marathon meeting issued Sani, Kwari and Bala automatic tickets on Tuesday, according to SaharaReporters.
Kwari will represent Kaduna North Senatorial District, while Barnabas Yusuf Bala will represent Southern Kaduna Senatorial District.
