Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has pulled out from the race for the Kano North senatorial seat to conciliate his opponents in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Governor’s withdrawal has made it easier for the renomination of the incumbent senator for the district, Barau Jibrin, one of the principal challengers of Mr Ganduje for the leadership of the APC in the state.
The APC official in the state, Zakari Sarina, who confirmed the development, said there have been momentous understanding across the board in the party.
“Yes there were tangible understandings between the duo and soon everybody will know this position,” he said.
The APC in Kano State has recently experienced an exodus of key leaders into other political parties.
Mr Ganduje has now bowed to pressure to allow some of his challengers to retain their offices, such as Mr Barau.
Loconaija gathered that the two and other high ranking APC members had been meeting in Abuja where the governor threw in the sponge on his intention, in the interest of peace in the party.
Before the pact between the groups, Mr Jibrin wanted to join in the defections from the APC to another party.
