The Council of Ullammas and some Jumma’at Mosque Immams in Kano have endorsed the candidature of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for the 2023 presidential election.
PlatinumPost gathered that the Immams and the Ullammas believe that it is time for payback for what the Jagaban did to one of their own, President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, whom they alluded, “had tried severally to clinch the Presidency but failed not until Tinubu joined forces with him in 2015.”
The visit of the former governor of Lagos State, who was in Kano to attend a wedding Fatiha, Friday, however, turned into something like seeking support for his much speculated ambition for the Presidency in 2023.
Immediately after the ceremony, which held at Minna Events Centre in the ancient city, Tinubu proceeded to Alfurqan Jumma’at Mosque where he was said to have met with the Chief Immam, Dr Bashir Omar as well as Dr Ahmad Datti whom he described as an old friend.
The meeting with Datti was said to have lasted only for few minutes by he proceeded to Challawa Phase 2, where he met with the Congregation of all the Immams and the Ullammas representing Tijjaniyya, Qadiriyya and Izala sects.
“It is indeed on record and in our minds what you did for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2014, this is somebody who had tried all he could to clinch his Presidential ambition but failed serially not until you joined forces with him, ” Sheik Shehu Shehu Maihula was quoted to have said during the meeting.
While Shehu Maihula of the Tijjaniyya sect, added that: “You Bola Tinubu brought to Buhari the Muslim’s and Christian South to mend fences with the North for him to achieve his long time desire.
“This we will revenge and revenge well, by given you all the necessary support you require to achieved your desire, this is an assurance to you for what you have done for us.”
PlatinumPost reports that though electioneering campaigns for the 2023 general elections are yet to commence, Tinubu is seen is one of the major contenders for the APC presidential ticket.
