Kano 2023: Ganduje Anoints Deputy As Successor

Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Deputy Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has anointed his deputy, Nasir Gawuna, as the preferred choice of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 governorship election.

Gawuna’s selection was made at a stakeholders’ meeting presided over by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The stakeholders were also said to have agreed that the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Murtala Sule Garo, should be the running mate for Gawuna in the election.

According to Daily Trust, it took the intervention of elders of the party and elder statesmen in the state to prevail on Garo to step down for Gawuna.

Garo, who is believed to have control of the party structure at the local government level, was seen as the preferred candidate of the wife of the governor, Hafsat Ganduje.
