2023: They Have No Excuse – Ganduje Reveals Candidate The North Will Support
Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has declared that the north would vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Ganduje gave the assurance during a political event spearheaded by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Alhaji Usman Alhaji held at the Sani Abacha stadium in Kano.
According to the Governor, the northerners have no excuse not to vote for Tinubu because the former Lagos State Governor has made sacrifices for democracy, supported the north in the past, and contributed immensely to the development of Nigeria as a whole.
The Governor said 2023 is payback time for Tinubu.
He said, “The north and northerners have no excuse not to support and vote for Tinubu and the APC. Bola Ahmed Tinubu has done incredibly well while supporting the course of the northerners and the development of Nigeria. So, it is time to pay back.
“Tinubu supported Buhari all the way until he became president. He did not ask for any political appointment and continued to support the government. I have never seen someone who loves northerners like him.”
No Meeting With G5 Governors
The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has reacted to trending reports of a secret London meeting between himself and the aggrieved Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) popularly referred to as the G5 Governors.
It would be recalled that several sources claimed Tinubu met with the G5 Governors and they gave him conditions to support his 2023 presidential bid.
Reacting to the saga in a statement on Saturday, the media aide to Tinubu, Tunde Rahman confirmed that the APC candidate was in London as speculated but denied any meeting between him and the G5 Governors.
Rahman said Tinubu arrived London on December 26, spent a few days there before proceeding to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj.
He said some persons were behind the rumours of a secret meeting and did it in bad faith to advance their selfish political ambitions.
The media aide added that Tinubu is however free to hold meetings with individuals or groups as part of efforts to deliver renewed hope to Nigerians.
