A presidential hopeful under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Dr. Abubakar Alkali, has announced his withdrawal from the contest ahead of the primaries citing what he describes as “the outrageous cost of forms”.

Alkali, who has contested for the senate seat for Sokoto central zone in 2011 under Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), has however endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari in his quest for a second term in 2019, adding that as a local party man, he was moved to back the president after the APC adopted him as its sole candidate.

In a press conference in Abuja on Friday, he called on his supporters to join hands with the current administration to continue in its job of delivering on democracy dividends to Nigerians.
