2023 Presidency: Tinubu has agreed to Muslim–Muslim ticket – Ganduje

Tinubu and Ganduje

Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has disclosed that the ruling All Progressives Congress Party (APC), Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has agreed to pick a Muslim running mate ahead of the 2023 election.

Ganduje stated this during a gathering of about 100 clerics at the state Government House as part of activities to mark Eid-El Kabir.

There have been concerns about the Muslim-Muslim ticket, considering the religious complexity of the country.

KEMI FILANI recalls that Tinubu had picked Alhaji Kabir Ibrahim Masari as a placeholder to beat the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline.

Speaking at the prayer meeting, Ganduje said Tinubu was advised to pick a Muslim running mate.

“We have advised him to pick a Muslim deputy, and he has agreed. A Muslim-Muslim ticket is a reality. It is not something new in Nigeria,” he said.

The governor asked the clerics to pray for Tinubu to emerge as Nigeria’s president come 2023 and for his Deputy Governor, Yusuf Gawuna, the APC governorship candidate for 2023 elections in Kano State.
