The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje on Friday claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may be fielding a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential race.
According to Ganduje, the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has been advised to pick a Muslim running mate and he has agreed.
The Kano State Governor made the disclosure while hosting about 100 Islamic clerics at the Kano state government house as part of activities to mark this year’s Eid El Kabir.
“We have advised him to pick a Muslim deputy and he has agreed,” Ganduje was quoted to have said.
Defending the position, the Governor argued that a Muslim-Muslim ticket is not new in Nigeria and citizens should accept the reality of what is coming.
“A Muslim-Muslim ticket is a reality. It is not something new in Nigeria.”
In his requests, Governor Ganduje asked the clerics to pray for Tinubu to emerge as the president of Nigeria in 2023.
He also urged them to pray for the continued success of his administration and good fortunes for his Deputy Governor, Yusuf Gawuna, who emerged as the APC governorship candidate in Kano State for the 2023 elections.
