A former media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari and Member of the House of Representatives, Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada, has declared interest to run for the office of Kano State governor in the 2023 general elections.
He made a formal declaration at the weekend to contest on the platform of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) at the Sani Abacha Youth Centre in Kano.

Sharada recently defected from the APC and joined the ADP to give the former party a challenge in the 2023 elections.
Sharada was a member of the popular G-7, a faction of the APC in Kano that was led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.
Recall that he has been at loggerheads with Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in recent times.
