July 08, (THEWILL) – The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 general elections, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has agreed to pick a Muslim vice-presidential candidate.
Kano State governor, Umar Ganduje, disclosed this on Friday, when he received some Islamic clerics at the Kano Government House, as part of activities to mark Eid-el-Kabir.
“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”, Ganduje disclosed.
According to a report by Channels TV, the Governor urged the clerics to pray for Tinubu, Kano State, as well as its Deputy Governor, Yusuf Gawuna, who emerged as the APC governorship candidate for the State in the 2023 elections.
