Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, yesterday said Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), has agreed to pick a Muslim vice-presidential candidate.
The governor made the comment during a gathering of about 100 clerics at the Kano State Government House, as part of activities to mark Eid el-Kabir.
“We have advised him to pick a Muslim deputy, and he has agreed”, Ganduje said, adding that “a Muslim-Muslim ticket is a reality. It is not something new in Nigeria”.
The governor asked the clerics to pray for Tinubu to emerge as Nigeria’s president come 2023.
He also urged them to offer prayers for his administration’s peace and progress.
