2023: Give me back my N2million – Son of former VP, Adam Namadi tells PDP delegates

Adam Namadi

Adam Namadi, the son of Nigeria’s ex-vice president, Namadi Sambo, has reportedly asked delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to refund the N2million he gave to each of them.

This comes after he could only secure two votes in the primaries for the Kaduna North Federal Constituency of the House of Representatives.

Namadi, who had promised to add N1.5million to the amount given to each of the delegates, secured the least votes among the three contenders.

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.
