A leading APC governorship aspirant in Sokoto, Faruk Yabo, on Monday debunked rumours that he has withdrawn from the race.
In a statement he issued on Monday he said he is in the race to rescue the state.
“My attention has been drawn to a false statement circulating to suggest that I have withdrawn from the race for Sokoto Government House.
“I hereby wish to categorically state that I am not in the race to withdraw in the first place, rather I am in it to rescue our dear state from a terminal illness that bedevils our chances of development.
“Democracy is a game of number where every single decision is taken by the people and for them. So this struggle is not my show but of the good people of Sokoto State.
“I also want to on behalf of my humble self, my supporters, the APC family and the entire people of Sokoto state assure the general public that, at no point I intend or would consider withdrawing from this contest for whatever reason.
”Sokoto belongs to all of us and we must work hard enough to restore its past glory no matter how tough or rough the road may be. In God We Trust,” said the statement.
