Kano govt accuses politicians of causing disaffection among Tinubu, Ganduje, Masari 

The Kano State government has asked the general public to disregard mischievous attempts by social media and online publications in the country to lift a story from a purported phone conversation’ between Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Ibrahim Kabiru Masari which involves his political relationship with President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

This was contained in a statement signed by the state commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba today. Garba stated that the exaggerated publicity on the purported audio clip was the handiwork of paid agents trying to unturn the so-called ‘conversation’ with a view to causing disaffection between the two political gladiators.

He noted that “from all indications, some people who are not comfortable with the long cordiality Tinubu, Ganduje and Masari enjoy are bent on exploiting the situation to their advantage.

In the viral audio clip, Governor Ganduje was heard lamenting how he was unfairly treated by the “president-elect” for meeting with the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP Presidential candidate, Sen. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.

 The conversation was between him and Ibrahim Masari, a former placeholder vice presidential candidate of the APC. The Governor was also heard saying the calculation by Tinubu of meeting with Kwankwaso was inaccurate.

Recall that Tinubu and Kwankwaso met for four hours in France, discussing a wide range of issues.
