It appears that Usman Baba may be positioning himself to contest in the Yobe South senatorial district election under the banner of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

This move comes in the wake of the resignation of the current senator, Ibrahim Geidam, who stepped down to assume a ministerial role.

Ibrahim Geidam, the outgoing senator, represented the Yobe East Senatorial District in Yobe State.

He was among the second batch of ministerial nominees forwarded to the Senate by President Bola Tinubu in recent times.
