Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state, says Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will bring accelerated growth and development to Nigeria if elected in 2023.
Ganduje spoke while accepting an appointment as the patron of the APC National Integrity Movement (ANIM) at the government house in Kano, on Wednesday.
The Kano governor said Nigerians are enjoying the democratic rule that Tinubu fought for.
“Tinubu’s track records and pedigree show that he can propel Nigeria to greatness if elected as president,” Ganduje said.
Asiwaju is man of integrity and a good product. He has contributed greatly to the growth and development of our democracy.
“He is a consummate democrat and the leader of progressives who fought to bring the democratic rule that Nigerians are enjoying today.”
He asked ANIM to consolidate on its support and advocacy for Tinubu as the 2023 presidential election draws near.
Ganduje expressed appreciation for the recognition by the group and promised to work hard for the election of Tinubu as president.
Earlier, Sadik Fakai, national leader of ANIM, said the appointment was a way of saying thank you to Ganduje for the strategic role he played in the actualisation of Tinubu’s candidature.
“Every member of the APC is important and has a lot to contribute to the success of the party,” Fakai said.
“APC remains the property of party faithful and we all have a stake in the party and ready to give our support.”
