Former Governor of Adamawa State, Boni Haruna, has disclosed that he called it quits in the race for Adamawa North senatorial seat due to lack of credible primaries.

Former Governor of Adamawa State, Boni Haruna, has disclosed that he called it quits in the race for Adamawa North senatorial seat due to lack of credible primaries.

He threw in the towel on Sunday, 24 hours to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries, which took place yesterday.

Haruna, who is from the same senatorial zone with Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, was Adamawa governor between 1999 and 2007.

Meanwhile, former acting governor, James Barka, won PDP’s House of Representatives ticket for Gombi/Hong federal constituency.

Barka, a political ally of Governor Fintiri, presided over the House of Assembly when Fintiri was a member on the platform of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) which metamorphosed into All Progressives Congress (APC).

Former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in Murtala Nyako’s administration, Mr Kobis Ari, got the party’s House of Representatives ticket for Guyuk/Shelleng federal constituency.
