A former federal lawmaker and Peoples Democratic Party governorship aspirant in Kaduna State, Shehu Sani, has disclosed that some aspirants who failed to secure tickets have been using house arrest to get a refund of the money shared to the delegates.
Sani said this via his Twitter page on Tuesday.

He said, "A man who has lost the House of reps ticket in Kaduna has recovered over N100million from delegates this evening using vigilantes and hunters.
"Some aspirants are moving house to house arresting delegates who collected their money and didn’t vote for them.”
He equally faulted the attitude of paying delegates to vote during the party primaries.


"If paying delegates is justified, the masses of the people can’t be faulted for demanding bags of rice before they vote," Sani explained.



SaharaReporters had reported on Tuesday that Namadi Sambo’s son said he requested the PDP delegates to refund his money after losing the Kaduna Primaries.


Namadi, who had promised to add N1.5million to the amount given to each of the delegates if given the ticket, was said to be the aspirant that 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.
