Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that a Bola Tinubu presidency in 2023 would accelerate national growth and development.
The Kano Governor said this on Wednesday while accepting an appointment as the patron of the APC National Integrity Movement (ANIM) at the Government House, Kano, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
He said, “Tinubu’s track records and pedigree shows that he can propel Nigeria to greatness if elected as president.
“Asiwaju is a 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,” Ganduje added.
He urged ANIM to consolidate on their support and advocacy for Tinubu after the presidential election in 2023.
The 72-year-old Ganduje expressed appreciation for the recognition by the group and promised to work hard for the election of Tinubu as President.
Earlier, the national leader of ANIM, Alhaji Sadik Fakai explained that the appointment was a way of saying thank you for the strategic role Ganduje played in the actualisation of Tinubu as the APC presidential candidate.
