The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has declared his intention to contest the Kebbi State governorship in 2023.
Malami declared his intention to run for the office at an event in Kebbi on Monday.
He lost the Kebbi governorship ticket to Atiku Bagudu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is currently the state governor, in 2014.
Bagudu is now set to complete his second term in office.
“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,” Malami said.
