A copy of the statement was made available to newsmen in Lagos by Tinubu’s Media Adviser, Mr Tunde Rahman. He said that the picture of himself and Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano that was circulating in the media was taken in 2018 when the governor visited Lagos.



According to him, such rumours are harmful to the democracy Nigeria seeks to enshrine and goes against the progressive tradition that describes Kano’s politics.



“These desperate politicians stir resentment of others as a way to get the support of the people. “They use lies and deception as their crutch, casting me as some type of one-man political invasion intending to unduly influence the governorship election.



“For the record, I’m not in Kano and have not been in Kano at any point during the conduct of these elections.


“The picture that these liars are circulating is one that was taken last year when the governor visited Lagos, “he said.


Tinubu expressed that Kano had historically stood as a bastion of progressive politics.


“Regarding the people of Kano, I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration.


“Kano has an enlightened electorate that will vote as they believe. I hope that they will disregard the lies and rumors about me and remain faithful to their progressive tradition.


“If the people do so, then they would have voted in their best interests and that is for the APC, the party of President Muhammadu Buhari, “he said.


Tinubu finally opened that as one at the forefront of the struggle for electoral reforms, justice and equality over the years, he would never do anything to desecrate those fine ideals.
