Risk Of Violence Deterred Me From Attending Abba Yusuf’s Inauguration — Ganduje

Former Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has provided an explanation for his absence from the inauguration of the state’s new Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

Because of his worries about possible violence between their followers, he said that he did not go to the inauguration.

In an interview with BBC Hausa on Tuesday, Ganduje made this disclosure.

He claims he has no issues with the state’s new administration.

Ganduje said: “Handing over can be divided into two aspects. The first is the transition of power, which involves the transfer of documents and information about the government’s operations, including completed projects, projects that were not completed, and advice for the incoming government.

“The second aspect is the inauguration. If the outgoing and incoming governments are from different political parties, it is not always necessary to attend the inauguration, as there is a risk of violence between supporters.”

On whether he attended Tinubu’s inauguration for an appointment, Ganduje said, “I am not here for any appointments, but if I am appointed, I will not decline.

“I am optimistic about Tinubu’s presidency. We will pray for him and continue to support him because he was elected due to his good track record.”
