A House of Reps-Elect, Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin, has claimed that Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje was economical with the truth by saying that he did not consented to the meeting that President-elect Bola Tinubu held with Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso in France.
Jubrim claimed that the Governor Ganduje personally told him that Tinubu consulted him before the meeting took place in France.
Ganduje had expressed reservation over the meeting, saying Tinubu had decided to see Kwankwaso, his estranged benefactor, as an alternative.
The governor had said Tinubu ought to have inform him or invite him to the meeting with Kwankwaso in France.
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.
“Lke 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.”
