ADAM, SON OF FORMER VICE PRESIDENT, NAMADI SAMBO WANTS DELEGATES TO REFUND N2 MILLION HE GAVE TO EACH OF THEM, AFTER LOSING PDP REPS PRIMARY
Son of NAMADI SAMBO, a former Nigeria’s Vice President, ADAM SAMBO has asked delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State to return the two million naira (N2m) he paid to each of them for the purpose of voting for him in the just concluded House of Representatives primary of the party last Sunday, for North Federal Constituency.
ADAM, who scored just two votes, made the demand, after losing the election to the incumbent, who recently defected from APC to the PDP.
Report says ADAM spent the initial N2 million with a promise to add another N1.5 million but he secured the least votes among the three contenders.
The delegates raked in millions of naira from the aspirants, who appeared in a hurry to outspend one another.
At the end, SAMAILA SULEIMAN, the incumbent representative of the constituency carried the day as he defeated ADAM and SHEHU USMAN ABG.
SULEIMAN, who recently decamped won with 22 votes against SHEHU USMAN ABG, who polled 14 votes.
Some delegates revealed that SULEIMAN had distributed between N3.5m and N4m to each delegate while SHEHU ABG gave out N2.5m in cash and ADAM distributed N2m to delegates.
However, at the moment, not just ADAM but ABG is also asking for refund, having lost the contest.
It is worthy of note that, SULEIMAN, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Special Duties left the APC, following the interest of the eldest son Governor Nasir El-Rufai in his seat at the Kaduna North Federal House of Representatives.
