Ganduje fumes in alleged leaked audio over Tinubu’s meeting with Kwankwaso
An alleged audio conversation between Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and Ibrahim Masari, a former vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has surfaced.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the audio captures Ganduje expressing his dissatisfaction with President-elect Bola Tinubu’s meeting with Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), despite their differences.
Earlier in the week, Tinubu and Kwankwaso met for a four-hour discussion in France, where they reportedly explored the possibility of Kwankwaso joining the ruling party. This meeting sparked various reactions across the country, with some APC members criticizing Tinubu’s actions.
In the leaked audio, Ganduje can be heard lamenting the perceived unfair treatment by Tinubu, as he believes that Tinubu should have informed him about the meeting with Kwankwaso.
The conversation between Governor Ganduje and Masari begins with Ganduje mentioning the widespread talk in Kano regarding the meeting between the two political leaders.
Ganduje says, “Now he (Tinubu) sees Kwankwaso as an alternative to us? No problem. Is it because we don’t have a government? And it’s even because of him (Tinubu) that we lost the government in any way.”
He further expresses his belief that if Tinubu intended to meet Kwankwaso, he should have informed them as well, even if it were merely a symbolic gesture.
