The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has denied travelling to Kano with the aim of meddling in the governorship election recently declared inconclusive in the state

"Asiwaju is not in Kano and has not been in Kano at any point during the conduct of these elections. The picture that these liars are circulating of Asiwaju and Governor Ganduje is one that was taken last year when the governor visited Lagos," Tunde Rahman, his media adviser, said in a statement late Tuesday, March 19.

According to the statement, those peddling the rumour know the picture is not true, but, "they still use it because their relationship to the truth is an adversarial one"

The statement added that Asiwaju has nothing but utmost administration and respect for the people of Kano and their brand of progressives politics adding that this provided the impetus for the formation of the APC.
