ODM Issues Direct Nomination Ticket To Mvita Member of Parliament, Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir to Succeed Joho.

Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, a Mvita Member of Parliament, is the Orange Democratic Movement’s (ODM) gubernatorial candidate in Mombasa.

After discussions led by Raila Odinga, the ODM party leader, Abdulswamad was awarded a direct nomination after his opponent, Suleiman Shabhal, stood down in his favor.

This, according to the party, is part of the ongoing consensus-building process in some places.

“Party leader Raila Odinga thanked businessmen Suleiman Shabhal for his decision to step down and support Abdullswamad Nassir saying it was an act of bravery and loyalty to the party,” a statement by ODM Party read in part.

Suleiman Shabhal told the press that he will collaborate closely with Abdulswamad to bring positive change to Mombasa County.

He stated that being at the head of the county is not a must for him, and that he would rather support the benefit of the people of Mombasa and the party.

“I have been aspiring to be governor of Mombasa for the last 10 years. But the objective to be governor was not for Suleiman Shabhal. The objective was to bring change and development to the people of Mombasa.

Raila also announced that Mombasa Senator, Mohamed Faki, will defend his seat in the August elections on the ODM ticket.

Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir will now battle out with Omar Hassan of UDA and Mike Sonko, Wiper Party in the august general elections.
