The Governor of Kano state, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, has agreed to withdraw his senatorial ambition.
His decision is believed to be in a bid to have a permanent solution to the All Progressives Congress, APC, Kano Chapter crisis.
Ganduje will step down for Senator Barau Jibrin.
Reports have it that there was a series of meetings between Governor Ganduje and Senator Barau Jibrin with other top APC members in Abuja, where an agreement was said to have been reached for the Governor to forego his ambitions in order to achieve peace.
Senator Barau Jibrin was reported to have insisted that he was not leaving APC although his gubernatorial ambition was blocked by Ganduje’s inner caucus.
However, after having a series of defections out of the party and also the fact that many actors had left the party, Ganduje agreed that some bigwigs in the party, Barau Jibrin inclusive, should be allowed to have their ways back to Senate.
Confirming the agreement between Governor Ganduje and Barau Jibrin, the party’s state secretary, Zakari Sarina said, “yes there is tangible understanding between the dou and soon everybody will know this position”.
