Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has stated that All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu has agreed to pick a Muslim as his running mate.
Ganduje made the announcement on Friday at a gathering of about 100 clerics at the Kano state government house as part of Eid-El Kabir celebrations.
He said, “We have advised him [Tinubu] to pick a Muslim deputy, and he has agreed.
“A Muslim-Muslim ticket is a reality. It’s not something new in Nigeria.”
Ganduje also requested that the clerics pray for Tinubu to be elected Nigeria’s next president in 2023.
Tinubu was elected as the APC’s presidential candidate in June of this year.
The former Lagos State governor received 1,271 votes, defeating his closest rivals, Rotimi Amaechi (316 votes) and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (235 votes).Click here to give us five stars rating!
