The Kano State Commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba, has predicted that the Presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu will win his counterpart Kwankwaso in the 2023 presidential election in the state.
The commissioner likened the developments to when MKO Abiola won against Kano-born Bashir Tofa in the 1993 presidential election in the state. He mentioned that history will repeat itself in the 2023 presidential election.
Garba spoke at a media parley with the theme, Let’s talk Nigeria which was organized by the Kaduna State League of Veteran Journalist in collaboration with The Arewa House and Hamdala Hotel, Kaduna.
Noting that, “I know the former governor of the state is also going to be on the ballot but history can repeat itself again in Kano because late Moshood Abiola of the defunct SDP defeated Kano born late Bashir Tofa of the defunct NRC during the 1993 presidential election.
“I am confident that Kano State will produce lots of votes come 2023. The votes from Nasarawa Local Government of the state alone is more than the entire votes of the South-Eastern states combined. I am confident we will deliver Kano State to APC.
“The state government will provide an enabling environment for all the candidates and anything can happen and all candidates will certainly get their share of votes depending on how the electorates perceived them.”
On security, the commissioner said the state governor had provided an enabling environment for all regardless of tribe, ethnicity and religion, declaring that “Kano State with the highest population in northern Nigeria is the most peaceful state.”
“His Excellency wants to leave a legacy in Kano as the most peaceful state in the country,” he added.
Garba, who was the former nationalnational president of the Nigeria Union of Journalist, told the veterans that the on-going construction of 30 shops embarked upon the Ganduje’s administration was almost completed.
He mentioned that the idea behind the project was to give practicing journalist in the state financial muscle to help them discharge their duties efficiently
