Sadiq Ango Abdullahi, the son of the convener of Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Ango Abdullahi, has won the primary for the Sabon Gari federal constituency.
Daily Trust reports that Sadiq Ango Abdullahi is one of the 61 persons still in captivity after bandits attacked and abducted passengers of train AK-9 from Abuja to Kaduna on March 28th 2022.
Several publications have reported that the bandits have released Sadiq but Daily Trust gathered from his father, Ango Abdullahi that Sadiq is yet to be released. Ango Abdullahi, a former Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, said he prays and hopes that his son will be released soon.
However, at the end of the PDP primaries, the Sadiq won with 28 votes to defeat other aspirants such as Hadiza Muhammad, Salisu Abdulhamid and Misis Paulina.
