Speaking on Tinubu, the Islamic cleric said the former Lagos state governor is a good administrator who can do well for Nigeria.

He, however, said the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket is a political gimmick to get votes.

“Let me use Hausa language, it is wayo and not a religious move. Whether it will work or not, I don’t want to prophesise but there are a lot of hurdles.
"In fact, all political parties have hurdles. Muslim-Muslim ticket is going to be a laboratory test for others to emulate or not," the cleric said.
