2023: I’ll Fight for Tinubu to Be President, Says Kano Guber Aspirant


An All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Kano State, Abdulsalam Abdulkareem Zaura, has thrown his weight behind the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his ‘presidential ambition’ in the 2023 general election.

Zaura, a strong associate of the state Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, declared that beyond all hurdles and controversy against the former Lagos State governor, he (Zaura) is prepared to “fight with all his strength and last kobo” for Tinubu to be president of Nigeria in the next election.

The aspirant, a young business tycoon, who recently decamped to the APC, made his political ambition known while granting audience with journalists yesterday in Kano.

Dwelling on the raging zoning arrangement for APC presidential ticket, the Kano born Dubai-based business mogul did not only consent to power being shifted to the Southwest for fairness, he believed that Tinubu remained the only trusted candidate to beat for the job.

According to him, “For federal character and fairness, I believe that power should shift to the South. And I will not feel happy if it is otherwise. Now, if it is going to the South, then it has to be Bola Tinubu.

“Then, I will work, and you will see the real fight in me. I will fight with all my strength for him to be the next president. I will fight with all my kobo and dollar for Tinubu to be president.”

On what could have motivated his strong support for Tinubu, Zaura said: “People have their different views; they keep digging to know my relationship with Tinubu. I have a personal relationship with Tinubu, and it will not change now.

“He is a father to so many not only A A Zaura, because he is man who builds people, and now that I have come to politics, it will not change anything; I will give him the same respect and he will give me the same care.”

Zaura added that: “We are all in the party called APC, and the leader is the Governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje. I am 100 percent with him; his decisions are my decisions, and whatever he decides, I am pleased with it.

“All I am here for is to help the governor to succeed; help the party to flourish, and help the party to dominate any other party in the state. This is my mission, and it is what I have been doing in the state.”
