Muslim faithful’s in Osun State have been charged by the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje to vote for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gboyega Oyetola.
Ganduje on Friday called on the Muslims to vote for Oyetola to continue his tenure because he is Muslim like them.
The Kano State Governor’s plea was revealed in an audio clip published by BBC Hausa on Friday night.
It was gathered that Ganduje visited a mosque in Osogbo the state capital and met with the Hausa community, urging them to vote for Oyetola.
Ganduje while addressing the voters said, “I have come to this mosque to talk to the Muslims here. Please, the person you should vote for is Oyetola. Do you know why? This is because he is a Muslim like you. We are guiding you on the path (to follow).”
Speaking on the controversy surrounding the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the APC, he said, “For the progress of the country, we don’t have to be religious biased.
“CHRISTIANS ARE ALSO OUR BROTHERS, TOO. WE MUST ALSO SUPPORT THEM.
“WHEN THE HAUSA SAID THEY ARE THE ONES THAT SHOULD RETURN TO THE SEAT, WE SAID NO, ‘IT WAS THE TURN OF THE YORUBA’.
“THAT IS WHY WE HAVE CHOSEN BOLA AHMED TINUBU. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE WILL BE ABLE TO AVERT FIGHTING AND CRISES. I’M HERE TO HELP OUR BROTHER (OYETOLA) WHO WE WANT TO WIN THE ELECTION TOMORROW.”
