Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, has said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has agreed to pick a Muslim vice-presidential candidate.
Ganduje made the comment on Friday during a gathering of about 100 clerics at the Kano state government house as part of activities to mark Eid El Kabir.
He said, “We have advised him to pick a Muslim deputy and he has agreed.
“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.
