Former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Tinubu, has cleared the air on why he visited the ancient city of Kano on Friday.

Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said contrary to speculations he was not in Kano to discuss political matters but for a wedding.

Speaking at the airport on Friday night, Tinubu said: “I’m not in Kano for any political campaign, but to attend the wedding of a respected friend’s daughter.”

He also told the reporters that the unity of the country should be placed above other considerations, adding that he will continue  to strive to make it an indivisible entity.

Tinubu arrived Kano on Friday afternoon, in the company of a former interim chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande; former chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu and other notable members of APC.

He was at a reception organised to celebrate the marriage of the daughter of an Islamic scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Bin Uthman, the Chief Imam of Masjid-Al-Sahaba, held at Mosque Hunaisa Muhammad Bin Uthman.

The aborted Third Republic Senator said those promoting division in the country would stop at nothing to achieve their goal, stressing that those who are patriotic must therefore collectively work against those few divisive elements.

He lauded the Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, for his role in ensuring the unity of the country, as he further described him as one of the leading thinkers for national unity who deserve accolade.

He commended the Kano governor for many developmental projects he had been executing across the state.

He said: “From the airport to this place, I have seen so many developmental projects that add many positive things to the state.

“We are elated by your hard work and commitment towards developing the state. This is commendable.

“I urge you to continue developing the state. We all have faith in you and your patriotic posture.”

During his stay in Kano, the national leader visited his age-long friend, Alhaji Yusuf Ali and some notable Ulamas in the state capital, among whom were Sheikh Abdulwahb Abdulah, Sheikh Ibrahim Shehu Mai Ula and Sheikh Abdulgafar Kabara.

The Ulamas promised Tinubu their support and cooperation for whatever his decision is in 2023.

”We will support you on your future political ambition,” they said.
