The former Senator was reportedly cleared by the National Working Committee of the ruling, APC.
His clearance means he will join Ademola Adeleke, a younger brother to the Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke, to vie for the party's ticket in a primary election scheduled to hold today
Senator Mudashir Hussein was yester disqualified from participating in the primary election scheduled to hold on Monday to pick the party’s candidate for the by-election to fill the Osun West Senatorial District vacant seat at the Senate.
The seat became vacant following the death of Senator Isiaka Adeleke on April 23 and the Independence National Electoral Commission has fixed July 8 for the by -election.
The committee communicated the disqualification to Hussein in a letter signed by its chairman, who is Zamfara State House of Assembly Speaker, Sanusi Rikiji and Secretary, Maj. Gen. Charles Airhiavbere ( retd). The letter was given to Hussein on Sunday.
The committee, however, cleared Adeleke’s younger brother, Ademola, for the primary election but told Hussein that he could appeal his disqualification.
