Obviously ignoring the imminent public backlash, Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has revealed that Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has agreed to pick a Muslim as running mate.
Amid speculations of his choice of running mate, Tinubu had in June announced Kabir Masari as vice-presidential candidate but said the name was submitted in placeholder capacity.
Speaking on Friday during a prayer session with clerics ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration, Ganduje said arrangements have been concluded for Tinubu to formally announce his running mate.
“We advised him to pick a Muslim deputy. He has agreed,” Ganduje said.
“A Muslim-Muslim ticket is a reality. It is not something new in Nigeria,” Ganduje added.
