Bola Tinubu the National Leader of All Progressive Congress has explained what he is actually doing in the ancient city of Kano.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that the Jagaban said he is not in Kano for campaign reasons but to attend a wedding ceremony.
Speaking at the airport on Friday night, Tinubu said: “I’m not in Kano for any political campaign, but to attend the wedding of a respected friend’s daughter.”
He also told the reporters that the unity of the country is paramount to him, and that he will continue to strive to make it an indivisible entity.
Tinubu, who arrived Kano on Friday afternoon, along with a former interim chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande; former chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu and notable members of APC, was at a reception organised to celebrate the marriage of the daughter of an Islamic scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Bin Uthman, the Chief Imam of Masjid-Al-Sahaba, held at Mosque Hunaisa Muhammad Bin Uthman.
He commended Governor Ganduje for many developmental projects he had been executing across the state and being a strong voice for national unity.
He said: “From the airport to this place, I have seen so many developmental projects that add many positive things to the state.
“We are elated by your hardwork and commitment towards developing the state. This is commendable.
“I urge you to continue developing the state. We all have faith in you and your patriotic posture.”
During his stay in Kano, the national leader visited his age-long friend, Alhaji Yusuf Ali and some notable Ulamas in the state capital, among whom were Sheikh Abdulwahb Abdulah, Sheikh Ibrahim Shehu Mai Ula and Sheikh Abdulgafar Kabara.
The Ulamas promised Tinubu their support and cooperation for whatever his decision is in 2023.
”We will support you on your future political ambition,” they said.
When confronted at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport (MAKIA) on his comment to the support by the Ulamas, Tinubu said: “I am in Kano for a wedding, not for any political campaign or ambition,” and boarded the aircraft already waiting for around 9 p.m on Friday night.
