The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Barau I. Jibrin (APC, Kano North), has dropped his governorship ambition and picked forms for the senate. With the development, Barau will be challenging Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje who has been endorsed to pick the senatorial ticket for the APC by party stakeholders.

Barau, one of the leading governorship aspirants in Kano State, dropped his ambition 24 hours after Ganduje anointed his deputy as the consensus candidate of the party.
