Has Ibrahim Mera Bid Politics Farewell?

Has the retired Deputy Comptroller-General, Nigeria Customs Services, Prince Ibrahim Mera, bid farewell to politics? This is the question on the lips of many who are in tune with the political situation in Kebbi State.

The son of the late Emir of Argungun has remained elusive since he again lost his bid to secure the state governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2023, making it the second time in a row the ticket eluded him.   

It is one dream he had pursued with great determination. But either by design or accident, the most sought-after position again eluded him last year just like it did in  2019.

It was gathered that when the billionaire ex-customs topshot threw his hat into the ring for the 2023 election, many political enemies sneered at him, saying it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for him to become the number one citizen of the state.

As predicted, the Prince of Argungu has proven his critics right, as he failed to pass through the screening organised by the party. This foreclosed his age-long ambition and further nailed the coffin of his ambition.

Society Watch gathered that since then, he has stayed away from activities of the party and other political gatherings in the state and its environs.

A source revealed that the huge and dark-skinned politician has lost his political relevance, while his political structure across the state has almost totally crumbled.

The source also disclosed that the businessman, who wasted several millions of Naira on the ill-fated project is silently licking his wounds, and has relocated to Abuja to mind his vast real estate businesses.
