The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has declared his intention to contest the Kebbi State governorship in 2023.
Malami made the declaration to his supporters at an event on Monday in Kebbi.
He said, “If God in His mercies permits and all goes well, I will as a politician contest the governorship of Kebbi State. I am seeking your support.
“I want to announce that I will contest indeed and as such, I am counting on your prayers and support so that we can all work and survive the race together.
“I have no history of betrayal and I won’t betray you people. I will work for you.”
In 2014, Malami contested for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress in Kebbi State but stepped down during the party primaries in favour of Atiku Bugudu, who is currently the governor of the state and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum.
