Sadiq Abdullahi Win Reps Ticket

Sadiq, who is seeking to represent Sabon Gari federal constituency of Kaduna state, won the election despite being one of the passengers abducted when bandits attacked a Kaduna-bound train.

KanyiDaily had reported how a train heading from Abuja to Kaduna was attacked by terrorists who opened fire on 362 passengers on board, killing eight persons and whisking away an unspecified number of people on Monday night, March 28.

The PDP held its states house of assembly and house of representatives primaries across the country on Sunday.

The returning officer, Mohammed Shafiu, who announced the results, said Sadiq secured 28 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Malam Abdulhamid, who scored six votes.

When asked by TheCable on Monday if Sadiq won the primary while in captivity, his father said: “Yes, he did. He’s still not at home.”

KanyiDaily recalls that some publications had reported that Sadiq was released by the bandits, but his father debunked the claims, stressing that his son is yet to be released.
