- Governor Ganduje has been hailed by Bola Tinubu for his efforts in fighting corruption
- The former Lagos state governor disclosed this during the inauguration office of anti-corruption commission
- Meanwhile, Ganduje claimed the commission had achieved little until his administration came to power
The giant strides of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state have been lauded by Bola Tinubu.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader commended the governor while inaugurating the Office of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.
According to the former Lagos state governor, what Ganduje did was a welcome development.
Tinubu said edifices like this will help Nigeria take its position in the international community.
“In ensuring Nigeria becomes a member of a committed international community that frees us from the burden of corruption this and similar edifices could play an important role in that.
“To a lot of us looking forward to a prosperous, corruption-free Nigeria and Africa today is dedicated to that objective."
Meanwhile, Ganduje lamented that the institution had achieved little until his administration came to power.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported Dr. Doyin Okupe, a former senior special assistant on public affairs to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan says he personally sees Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as a formidable opponent in the 2023 presidential race.
The former presidential aide stated this on Sunday, March 28, in reaction to the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader's fall at the Arewa Lecture held in Kaduna state.
Okupe in a series of tweets sighted by Legit.ng said that from his observation of the viral clip, what happened to Tinubu was neither a fall nor a slump because these English words cannot be used to describe what was seen on the video.
In a related development, serving speakers and their predecessors from the northwest zone of Nigeria have declared their support for Tinubu as the successor to President Buhari in 2023.
Their declarations and promises are coming some weeks after a similar endorsement of Tinubu was carried out by their colleagues in the southwestern zone of Nigeria.
