Mohammed Hayatu-Deen Drops Out Of The Race
A presidential contestant from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mohammed Hayatu-Deen, has withdrawn from the campaign to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, just days before the primary poll.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Hayatu-Deen, a former managing director of the now-defunct FSB International Bank, announced his resignation in a letter to PDP national chairman Iyorchia Ayu.
He declared that he withdrew from the presidential election because it had been “obscenely monetised.”
The location of the PDP primaries is well guarded by a combined team of security officers, comprising personnel from the Nigeria Police Force, Civil Defense, and the DSS.
