The governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje, said on Friday that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, had consented to choose a Muslim as his running mate.
As part of celebrations for Eid El Kabir, he delivered the remark before an audience of roughly 100 clerics at the Kano state government house.
He agreed after our advice to choose a Muslim as his deputy, Mr. Ganduje stated.
“A Muslim-Muslim matchup is a thing. In Nigeria, it is not a novel concept.
Mr. Ganduje urged the clerics to offer prayers for Tinubu to become the president of Nigeria in 2023.
He also advised them to pray for peace and success under his administration.
Yusuf Gawuna, the APC candidate for governor of Kano State in the elections of 2023, emerged as Mr. Ganduje’s deputy governor. Mr. Ganduje requested that the clerics pray for him.
