The All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate for Zamfara Central senatorial zone, Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa has accepted his defeat by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Hon. Ikira Aliyu Bilbis.
Marafa in a statewide broadcast on Monday, April 17, thanked the people of Zamfara Central senatorial zone for the opportunity afforded him to represent them between 2011 and 2019.
The former senator also thanked Governor Bello Matawalle for standing by him to ensure that he contested the senatorial election for the third time.
Marafa promised that he will never approach the court to challenge the result of the 2023 senatorial election, saying that the action will distract the senator-elect from doing his job, which he said would eventually affect the senatorial zone.
