Alhaji Mahdi Aliyu-Gusau, the immediate past Deputy Governor of Zamfara and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship aspirant, has withdrawn from the race.
He announced on Wednesday, a few hours before the commencement of the party’s governorship primaries.
Aliyu-Gusau urged his supporters, delegates, and party leaders to vote for Dr. Dauda Lawal-Dare to clinch the governorship ticket during the primaries.
Meanwhile, he thanked his supporters for the massive support he enjoyed during and after his days as deputy governor of the state.
This leaves three aspirants, Lawal-Dare, Alhaji Abubakar Nakwada, and Alhaji Wadatau Madawaki will slug it out for the governorship ticket of the PDP during the primaries.
