Another gov candidate dies one month to elections



Alhaji Aliyu Maina, the National Rescue Movement’s candidate for governor in Adamawa State, was declared dead on Thursday, one month before the general election.

He was reported to have passed away on January 25 in Abuja after a brief illness, the same day that Prof. Uchenna Ikonne, the PDP’s candidate for governor of Abia State, was officially declared dead.

In a statement sent to newsmen, Olusola Afuye, the NRM’s national publicity secretary, confirmed the incident.

He said, “According to the statement from the family, late Alhaji Abba Maina died on Wednesday, January 25 at his residence in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, after a brief illness.

“He has been buried according to Muslim rite. We pray to Almighty Allah to protect his family and all his loved ones.

“We are also calling on all his family members, business and political associates to show late Maina’s family love and care during this mourning period.

“Further details and arrangements would be made known to the public after deliberations and meetings are made with his immediate family and his political family.”
