A former president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Sani
Abdullahi, has picked the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship
form ahead of Kogi elections in November.





Abdullahi picked the form at the APC national secretariat in Abuja around noon on Thursday.





He will contest the party’s governorship ticket with Governor Yahaya Bello who is seeking a second term in office.





Abdullahi
told journalists after collecting the form that he would pursue a
policy of zero tolerance to corruption if he becomes governor of Kogi.





“We
are going to do our job to give our best to Kogites but to also process
that we have a platform that we can use in Kogi state to support the
zero tolerance for corruption like Mr President is doing,” he said.





“That
was why possibly they saw from a deficit of 300million naira I saw in
the account and I was able to raise money to up to N2.8 billion.





“I
now know that the people want me to give my best just like I have done
in where I have worked before. As a director of sports, as a president
of the Nigeria Football Federation, where I was so transparently
representing their interest and accounting for every bit of resources
that I had.”





The APC primaries for the election holds on August 29.





Abdullahi
is a former Federal Capital Territory director of sports. He was both
the 1st and 2nd Vice President of the NFF in 2006 before being elected
into the leadership position of the federation.
