Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano said says his ruling party's presidential flagbearer is not an experimental president given his dexterity and strong rooting in politics and administration in the Nigeria project.
The governor made the assertion at the Governor’s Lodge, Aminu Kano House, Abuja, when he received an award presented to him by the National Coalition of Tinubu Support Groups Worldwide, the national directorate, comprising of Nigeria, USA, UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Oman, UAE chapters, for his leading role in Tinubu’s victory at the party’s primary election.
He said given his (Tinubu's) outstanding performance as Lagos state governor, his presidency can best manage the nation's diversity.
Ganduje pointed out that Asiwaju’s emergence at the primary election gives hope and encouragement that the party is set to win the 2023 election.
The governor also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for creating the ennabling environment for the conduct of the primary, the APC and its governors as well as other aspirants who have expressed readiness to work with Asiwaju for the victory of the party.
In a statement by Kano state commissioner of information, Muhammad Garba, Ganduje expressed appreciation for the recognition by the coalition and promised to work harder for the success of the Asiwaju’s presidential candidature.
Earlier, the Convener and Global Director-General of the coalition, Dr Doyin Johnson had said that the award was presented to Governor Ganduje as way of saying 'thank you' for the strategic role he played in the actualisation of Asiwaju's presidency.
He charged the governor to continue to use his intellectual capacity and strong mobilisation prowess to ensure the success of the APC presidential candidate at the polls.
