Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule has secured the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to seek a second term in office during the 2023 polls.
This is as the Governor on Thursday recorded a massive victory at the APC governorship primary election held at the City Hall in Lafia, the state capital.
Gov. Sule polled a total of 698 votes while his only challenger, 43-year-old female aspirant, Fatimah Abdullahi got three votes.
The result of the election was announced by the Returning Officer of the APC primary election, Isa Ibeto.
Speaking after he was declared winner, Gov. Sule urged all stakeholders in the party to join hands with him to ensure victory.
He also praised his female challenger and called on women to take more active roles in politics.
The Governor appreciated the party delegates for their support and promised to do better in office if he eventually emerges victorious in the general elections.
Governor Abdullahi Sule will fly the APC flag and face a familiar opponent in the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), David Ombugadu.
Both politicians faced off during the 2019 elections for the state governorship seat.
