Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial district, Ibrahim Shekarau has said he would give up the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Senatorial seat.

Media Assistant to the lawmaker, Sule Y. Sule apprised newsmen on Wednesday that his principal has turned down the Certificate of Return.

Shekarau made this disclosure after he was declared winner of Kano Central Senatorial district on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party by the Independent National Electoral Commission after the February 25 presidential and parliamentary elections.

The one-time governor of Kano State didn’t show up at the International Conference Centre, Abuja on Tuesday to receive his certificate of return as senator-elect, saying he has long dumped the NNPP for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

“We have already made our position clear on the issue. Senator Shekarau is not interested and will not collect the certificate of return. As a matter of principles and personal conviction”, Sule said.
