The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be running a Female-Male ticket for the 2023 governorship election.
This is as its governorship candidate, Senator Aishatu Ahmed Binani named a former House of Representatives member, Hon Titsi Ganama as her running mate.
Binani’s campaign organization director-general, Senator Ahmed Barata confirmed the candidate’s choice of running mate in a statement issued in Yola, the state capital yesterday, Naija News understands.
Barata said Ganama stood out and scaled through careful considerations to emerge as the running mate from the northern senatorial district.
Naija News understands that Ganama was one of three nominees suggested by a selection committee constituted for that purpose, the other two nominees being Tapa Sirumtu and Vanje Bitrus.
The Ganama represented the Madagali/Michika Federal Constituency, while Binani represented the Yola North/Yola South/Girei constituency.
The duo had served at the same time in the House of Representatives during the 7th National Assembly era (2011-2015).
Ganama, who holds a Bsc and Msc in Geography, was a lecturer with the then College of Preliminary Studies, now Adamawa State Polytechnic (SPY), Yola.
Before now, Ganama had ventured into the banking system, rising to the position of branch manager with the defunct Allied Bank Plc in Ibadan, Jos and Abuja.
He was also a branch manager with the defunct Loin Bank Plc, Kano branch, and then Head of Human Resources in the bank’s headquarters in Abuja.
Ganama also once served as an SA to a former Minister of Labour and Productivity, Sen Uba Ahmed (late), and also as Adamawa State Commissioner of Finance during the Boni Haruna government.
