share on:

The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hajiya Khadija Ibrahim defeated her stepson, Mohammed Ibrahim to win the All Progressives Congress' (APC) ticket for Damaturu/Gulani/Gujba/Tarmuwa, Yobe Federal Constituency. Hajia Ibrahim is married to Mohammed Ibrahim's father, Senator Abba Bukar Ibrahim, who is the former governor of Yobe State.  The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that pressures were mounted on Mohammed to step down for his father’s wife, but he insisted on contesting. Two other contenders, House of Representatives member Abdullahi Kukuwa and Alhaji Ahmed Buba, stepped down for the minister while Mohammed refused. Prof Abba Gambo, the returning officer, announced Hajia Ibrahim 1,295 votes to defeat Mohammed who scored only 15 votes. Senator Abba Bukar Ibrahim did not attend any of the aspirants’ elections, not even the one contested by his wife and son.The post Mother defeats her son to win APC ticket during primary election in Yobe appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
