Ganduje to contest for Kano North Senatorial seat
Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is to pick the ticket for Kano North Senatorial District today (Monday).
Reports suggest that the governor will join list of politicians who buy the expression of interest and nomination forms through proxy, as it was claimed that his loyalists would purchase the forms for him.
Kano North is currently represented at the red chamber by Senator Barau Jibrin, a member of the G-7, which has been at daggers-drawn with the governor since last year, and lost out on Friday at the Supreme Court.
Jibrin, who has also declared to run for the governorship of the state has, however, said he would remain in the party and see through with his governorship ambition.
Another member of the G-7, Sha’aban Sharada, a federal lawmaker for Kano Municipal, has also reportedly picked his expression of interest and nomination forms to contest the governorship of the state.
This is also as the leader of the G-7, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, who picked the Kano Central Senatorial forms last week, is said to have reconciled with Ganduje and has been given a clean bill to return to the senate without a challenge within the party.
Nigerian Sketch reported earlier that a former Speaker of the state’s House of Assembly, Alhassan Rurum, has dumped the APC after he what he called the undemocratic manner the party wanted to pick its governorship candidate.
Rurum, the Member of the House of Representatives representing Rano/Bunkure/Kibiya, is among the top politicians hoping to clinch the party’s governorship ticket.
