The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Saturday’s governorship election, Abubakar Audu, has died, his friend and close associate. According to PREMIUM TIMES.
“Audu is gone,” the distraught associate, who requested not to be named, told our reporter on the telephone.
Though too shattered to provide details of the politician’s passing, he confirmed he was in the candidate’s company when he passed on.
The source said the former governor suddenly took ill and was being rushed to Abuja preparatory to being flown abroad when he passed on.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared the Saturday governorship election inconclusive, but Mr. Audu was in a pole position to be declared winner eventually.
