Missing name of Labour party’s gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna rumour

The Labour Party gubernatorial candidate for the 2023 general elections in Kaduna State, Jonathan Asake, has expressed concern over rumours being circulated that his name is missing from the list issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

James Swam, the Media Aide to Jonathan Asake, in a statement explained that the news being circulated is absolutely far from the truth.

The statement further explained, “The list being circulated is an old one that contains Labour Party, LP, placeholder for Kaduna, prior to the substitution primary that Asake won.”

The statement explained that the substitution primary was supervised by INEC, IPAC, security agencies and that all relevant bodies specified by the electoral law were at the venue.

He said Shinom Adinga, the person who had indicated interest to contest voluntarily stepped down for Jonathan Asake.

“Gentlemen, the Labour Party, LP, has since issued Jonathan Asake his certificate of return which clearly shows that the party approved of his emergence as the governorship candidate for Kaduna State.

”So kindly disregard any falsehood from any quarter on Jonathan Asake’s candidature,” the statement explained.
