Why Nigerians voted Tinubu as Buhari’s successor, Ganduje reveals

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has suggested that Nigerians voted for Bola Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari because of his decades-long fight for the restoration of democracy in the country.

Recall that the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, had in the early hours of Wednesday, announced Tinubu as the winner of the just concluded Presidential election.

Tinubu emerged as president-elect after beating the likes of PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi in the presidential election conducted last Saturday.

In a swift reaction to Tinubu’s victory, Ganduje, in a statement issued this morning by his Chief Press Secretary, Malam Abba Anwar, commended the hard political struggle and commitment of Tinubu’s political dynasty.

He said, “Tinubu’s genuine investment in human, national development and national integration played some critical roles in endearing him to all sections of the country.

“Tinubu’s decades-long fight for the restoration of democracy in the country is well understood by Nigerians. Hence we see wisdom and valid reasons for entrusting our future to him.

“With our President-elect, Tinubu, leading the largest democracy in Africa, our continent will definitely benefit from the wealth of experience for the development of the continent.”
