Gaya has now secured the ruling party’s ticket to seek a second term in the 2023 elections.

Ahmad left the venue of the primary before the conclusion of the exercise.

He then posted on his Facebook page: “As an aspirant, I left the venue of the primary election for Gaya, Ajingi and Albasu Federal Constituency, because of the security of our majority delegates. If you want to compete with the best, thugs shouldn’t be part of any election.”
