Adam Namadi, son of Namadi Sambo, former vice-president, has reportedly asked PDP delegates to refund the N2 million he gave each of them after losing the party’s primary election.
Namadi who aspired to represent Kaduna north federal constituency in the house of representatives, secured just two votes at the party’s primary.
The aspirant had promised to add N1.5 million to the amount given to each of the delegates, but he secured the least votes among the three contenders.
The delegates raked in millions of naira from the aspirants who appeared in a hurry to outspend one another.
At the end, Samaila Suleiman, the incumbent representative of the constituency carried the day as he defeated Namadi and Shehu Usman ABG.
Suleiman, who recently decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP, won with 22 votes against Shehu Usman ABG who polled 14 votes.
Delegates told Daily Trust that Suleiman had distributed between N3.5m and N4m to each delegate while ABG gave out N2.5m in cash and Namadi had distributed N2m to delegates.
However, having lost the contest, both ABG and Namadi demanded an immediate refund.
Suleiman, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Special Duties, left the APC following the interest of Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s eldest son in his seat at the green chamber
