Ganduje Lied, Tinubu Discussed With Him Before Meeting Kwankwaso- Jibrin


Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, House of Representatives member-elect on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party has refuted claims by Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje that President-elect didn’t carry him along before meeting with NNPP Presidential Candidate Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso.

Tinubu four-hour meeting with Kwakwanso in Paris had generated reactions in the political space.

On Saturday, an audio of a call between Ganduje and former All Progressives Congress Vice Presidential placeholder Aminu Masari where they discussed about the meeting leaked.

In the audio, Ganduje was heard complaining about the meeting, saying Tinubu sidelined him for Kwakwanso after working for his emergence.

“I can’t do anything since Kwankwaso has become an alternative to us. There is no problem.

” Because we don’t have government? It’s because of him that we lose reelection.

“The right thing is that even if he will grant Kwankwaso audience, it should be in our presence. We should be invited. Did you understand? Even if it is symbolically,” Ganduje was heard saying in the leaked audio.

But in a chat with Daily Trust, Jibrin, who was part of the meeting in France, said Ganduje confirmed to him that Tinubu consulted him before the meeting took place.

“Like every other Nigerian, I was very shocked when I listened to that audio but I think the most important thing is that I want to confirm to you that Governor Ganduje was consulted.

“And he himself confirmed this to me, told me in clear words that the President-elect invited him and told him that he is planning meeting with Kwankwaso and asked he Ganduje if he had any objections to it, and Ganduje told me that he told the President-elect that he has no any objection.

“So it is extremely unfair for the president-elect to be portrayed in bad light before the public by Governor Ganduje who knows very well that the president consulted him before that meeting because he confirmed that to me clearly.

“It is very very unfair to the president-elect, and I do not believe that the Mr president will abandon anyone who supported him… but again, what is paramount is national unity, cohesion and development.”
