Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has expressed delight with the emergence of former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ganduje said Tinubu’s victory at the APC presidential primary election shows that the ruling party is ready to retain power in 2023.
He said Tinubu has the capacity to provide the needed leadership that would consolidate and continue to ensure the country’s democratic gains.
The Kano Governor made this known in a congratulatory message personally signed by him on Wednesday in Abuja.
Ganduje opined that the emergence of Tinubu as the APC standard bearer in the 2023 general election would be a victory for the Nigeria project.
He, however, called on Tinubu as party to bring his political and socio-economic experience to bear on party leadership and members to close ranks and work for its victory in the forthcoming election.
Ganduje commended President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC leadership and the delegates for providing the enabling environment that produced Tinubu as the party’s presidential candidate.
The governor also hailed other aspirants for their remarkable sportsmanship which they displayed throughout the painstaking consultation period up to the convention.
Ganduje also charged all party members to remain United and focused as the party marched with Nigerians to victory in 2023.
