Bola Tinubu Agrees To Choose A Muslim Running Mate – Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State stated that the All Progressives Congress Party (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has agreed to select a Muslim vice presidential candidate.

Concerns have been raised regarding the Muslim-Muslim ticket, with stakeholders and detractors having opposing stances.

Bola Tinubu chose Katsina politician Alhaji Kabir Ibrahim Masari as a stand-in in order to meet the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline.

Ganduje stated that Tinubu was instructed to choose a Muslim running mate during a gathering of over 100 clerics at the state Government House to celebrate Eid El Kabir.

“We recommended him to choose a Muslim vice president, and he agreed. A Muslim-to-Muslim ticket is possible. It is not a new phenomenon in Nigeria,”

He also requested that the clerics pray for Tinubu’s 2023 election as president of Nigeria.

While urging them to pray for the peace and success of his administration, he also requested the clerics to pray for his deputy governor, Yusuf Gawuna, who has emerged as the APC’s candidate for the Kano State governorship in 2023.
