2023: Details of Tinubu’s meeting with Shekarau emerge

A former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau on Tuesday said he was at the residence of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu, on Sunday, basically to discuss Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.

In an interview with BBC Hausa Service, Shekarau revealed that it was Tinubu that requested to see him, and he went there after consulting members of the G-7.
Shekarau said Tinubu wanted to confirm whether there is any grudge between him and Ganduje.

“I told him it is not a fight between Shekarau and Governor Ganduje. It is rather an issue between the G-7 and leadership of the party in Kano. And our reason for that is party members are not given their right and freedom on anything related to the party.

“He told me that he heard from Governor Ganduje and he wanted to hear from me, so that we can get to know the faulty side. We sat and I briefed him on all that happened from the beginning up to the recent court judgment,” Shekarau said.

On whether they discussed anything that has to do with supporting Tinubu on his presidential ambition in 2023, Shekarau said “There is nothing like supporting him. As I told you he requested me to see him. So both of us are leaders in the APC, and we have good relation. So with or without this crisis happening in Kano, we can meet and discuss issues of our great party.”
