Ahmed Zakari, Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Infrastructure, has joined the race for the gubernatorial ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Zakari, who has purchased the party expression of interest and nomination forms, made the disclosure in a letter of intent sent to party leaders in Jigawa State.

“After due consideration and consultation, I will be joining the aspirants that are vying to run for the Office of Governor of Jigawa State in the upcoming primary elections of our great party,” Zakari said in the letter.

He added, “With my requisite experience in Engineering, Economics, Finance and Administration gathered from years working and studying across the globe and in Nigeria, I believe (if given the opportunity) I can build on the great legacy of His Excellency Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar.

“I am also today, the youngest person in the Buhari Administration to occupy a cabinet-level position as Special Adviser to the President on Infrastructure. I started this role at the age of 36.”

He added that in that capacity since 2019, he has worked on many significant national assignments under Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, “and I must thank them immensely for providing me the opportunity to serve and the platform to excel.”
