Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano State governor, has endorsed Nasiru Gawuna, the state’s deputy, to become the next governor.

The decision was said to have been taken at a recent stakeholders’ meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano.

During the stakeholders’ meeting presided over by the governor, Murtala Garo, former commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs, was reportedly selected to be Gawuna’s running mate in the 2023 governorship election.

According to sources, Garo is “believed to have the capacity to deliver votes for the party, considering his influence at local government level”.

Meanwhile, Ganduje is reportedly making plans to obtain the nomination and expression of interest forms to represent Kano north senatorial district.

The Kano north senatorial seat is presently occupied by Barau Jibrin.

Ganduje was deputy governor of Kano to Rabiu Kwankwaso for two terms — 1999 to 2003, and 2011 to 2015 — before he became governor of the state in 2015.
