Kaduna State Governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, yesterday submitted a letter of intention to seek re-election next year.
Yero, who was at the Kaduna State Secretariat of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to formally hand over the letter to the Party Chairman, Abubakar Haruna, said the decision to contest was informed by pressure mounted on by people to run.
According to him, he had to accept the clarion call because of the need to consolidate on the relative peace achieved in the state under his administration.
“I can’t say no to the wish of people, when they called on me to contest. It would be a great disservice to them,” Yero stated.
Though the governor said he was yet to formally declare, he assured his supporters that he would do that after consultation with the stakeholders within the party and state.
In his remark after receiving the letter from the governor, the party chairman said the party members are happy now that he has finally signified interest to contest.
