Ahmad, whose wish is to represent Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu federal constituency, has, however, rejected the outcome of the primary stating that the reason of rejecting the result is due to the use of thugs during the election.

He rejected the result of the election after the incumbent member, Abdullahi Mahmood Gaya, was announced as the winner of the election.
“As an aspirant, I left the venue the of the primary election for Gaya, Ajingi and Albasu Federal Constituency, because of the security of our majority delegates. If we want to compete with the best, thugs shouldn’t be part of any election,” he said on Facebook and Twitter.
