Labour Party Disowns Kano Member Who Met Tinubu, He's Not Our Guber Candidate


The Labour Party in Kano State has dismissed claims that Bashir Ishak-Bashir, who defected to the All Progressives Congress, was its governorship candidate.

Ishak-Bashir had on Monday told the News Agency of Nigeria that he had commenced talks with the All Progressives Congress to support it in the forthcoming elections.

“I am in high-level discussion with the leadership of the APC at the national level on how we can support the party to win the forthcoming general elections.

“I will soon get across to you our final position on the matter,” Ishak-Bashir told NAN.

The LP Chairman in the state, Alhaji Mohammed Raji, however, dismissed Ishak Bashir’s claims, saying he was never the LP governorship candidate.

Raji said at a news conference on Monday in Kano that Ishak Bashir’s name has never been on the Independent National Electoral Commission portal as LP’s governorship standard bearer in Kano State.

“He came to the party alone and left alone,” Raji said, adding that the structure of the party remained intact with all its Senatorial, House of Representatives and State Assembly candidates contesting in the forthcoming general elections.
