…Gumsu is alleged to be interested in contesting for the position of a Senator representing Kano Central in the upper legislative chamber
Hajiya Gumsu Sani-Abacha, the daughter of former Nigerian military dictator, Sani Abacha has reacted to her viral campaign posters on social media. According to the posters sighted by our correspondent, Gumsu is alleged to be interested in contesting for the position of a Senator representing Kano Central in the upper legislative chamber.
However, Hajiya Gumsu has taken to her official Instagram page to disassociate herself from the campaign materials making the rounds with her image and name. She noted in her June 7 post that she is not an active politician, neither is she interested in contesting any political position at this time.
She noted: “I would like to draw the attention of the general public to the recent proliferation of political campaign material bearing my name and person on numerous social media platforms. “I wish to categorically state that I am not presently involved in partisan politics at any level and I have not indicated interest in running for any political office; the Nigerian Senate or any other office as currently being suggested.
“I urge members of the public to disregard these suggestions as they hold no truth whatsoever. “I would also like to use this medium to counsel the purveyors of this material to desist from peddling any political material using my name and person. “While sounding this note of caution, let me also take the liberty to encourage us all to stay safe. #Staysafe Haj. Fatima Gumsu Abacha.”
