Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami has declared intention to run for the 2023 Kebbi State Governorship elections.
The Minister made this known on Thursday.
He would be seeking the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The AGF explained that he joined the race in response to calls from his people to serve the state.
“People from the state have been pressuring me to contest the governorship position in 2023.
“Going by my proper upbringing as the son of an Islamic teacher, I will not show interest to contest for any position or judge myself qualified for any position except the people of the state want me to.
“I have contributed a lot to the country and also to the state in areas of employment generation, fight against poverty, agricultural revolution and women empowerment.
“We pray for Allah’s guidance and assistance and may the answer to your demands be the continuous development of the state,’’ Malami said.
