Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that he would not be getting involved in the Kano State elections.
Tinubu made this known in reaction to some quarters saying he will be involved and is currently in the State. According to a statement he released, such are lies spread by desperate politicians to get support.
“These desperate politicians stir resentment of others as a way to get the support of the people. They use lies and deception as their crutch, casting me as some type of one-man political invasion intending to unduly influence the governorship election.
“For the record, I’m not in Kano and has not been in Kano at any point during the conduct of these elections. The picture that these liars are circulating is one that was taken last year when the governor visited Lagos.
“Regarding the people of Kano, Asiwaju has nothing but the utmost respect and admiration. Kano has historically stood as a bastion of progressive politics. Its brand of politics helped inspire the establishment of the APC. Kano has an enlightened electorate that will vote as they believe. Asiwaju hopes that they will disregard the lies and rumors about him and remain faithful to their progressive tradition.’
