Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, says the votes by the Hausa community in Lagos should surpass that of his state.

 

Ganduje spoke on Wednesday when he visited the Hausa community in Alaba Rago, Iba LCDA of Lagos.

 

The governor was with Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his Lagos counterpart, and Kashim Shettima, vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

Ganduje said as far as the north is concerned, “the issue of Tinubu is concluded”.

 

 “Kano state wants votes from you for Tinubu. You have to promise us you will surpass Kano in your votes for Tinubu,” NAN quoted the governor as saying.

 

On his part, Shettima said the 2023 election is payback time by the north for Bola Tinubu, the standard bearer of the APC, for his past support to the region.

 

The former Borno governor said Tinubu supported President Muhamadu Buhari in 2015 and 2019.

 

 “We are people of honour. We should honour our pledge and promise. This is payback time for the north to support Tinubu,” Shettima said.

 

Also speaking, Sanwo-Olu said the meeting with the community was part of the party’s political discussions with non-indigene groups residing in the state.
