Former Kano governor Ganduje opens up on seeking to be minister in Tinubu’s government

The former Governor of Kano, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has disclosed what he is seeking under the new administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ganduje stated this known on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, in an interview published by BBC Hausa.

Ganduje, who was happy to have worked for the emergence of Tinubu as Nigeria’s president, said if he is offered any appointment, he would take it.

“I am not looking for any appointment. But, if I am offered any, I would take it.

“I wish him (Tinubu) well and will continue to pray to Allah to help him because people voted for him because of the belief that he will emulate the things he did in Lagos State while he was governor and because he is a true democrat.

His victory is also our victory because we supported him.”

The former governor also disclosed he did not attend yesterday’s inauguration ceremony of Abba Yusuf because “he wanted to prevent their supporters from clashing during the event.”

Recall that the governor of the state Yusuf, on Monday, decried the N241bn debt left over by the administration of the former governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Yusuf inquired where the state government would get the money to recover from the debt, saying, “It is so disheartening to hear that the state government left a debt of over N241 billion, it is so disheartening. Where are we going to source the money?”
