National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Monday, explained why he picked Kano as the venue for his 12th colloquium and 69th birthday.

According to the two-term former governor of Lagos state, he picked Kano to prove that Yoruba and Fulani are one.

To buttress his point, Tinubu made reference to the marriage of the daughter of Kano State, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, to the son of the late ex-Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, which took place in Kano in 2018.

He said, “Why are we in Kano? It is to demonstrate to Nigerians at this critical time. There is a Fulani man, a herder man who gave his daughter to a farmer, a Yoruba man. And that Fulani, that Yoruba (sic), and some people are agitating wrongly.”
