Kano state government has described as mischievous attempt by social media and online publications in the country to lift a story from a purported phone conversation’ between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Ibrahim Masari which involves his political relationship with President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Kano commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Muhammad Garba in a statement on Saturday, stated that the exaggerated publicity on the purported audio clip was the handiwork of paid agents trying to unturn the so-called ‘conversation’ with a view to causing disaffection between the two political gladiators.

He explained that from all indication some people who are not comfortable with the long cordiality Tinubu, Ganduje and Masari enjoy are bent on exploiting the situation to their advantage.

Garba also maintained that the governor and the President-elect have since realised this mischievous attempt to cause disaffection between them, and would not allow this sound working relationship which has been waxing stronger particularly at this critical time to be destroyed by some self-centered individuals.

The commissioner called on members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the general public to disregard such attempt and remain calm and loyal to the party to ensure the successful inauguration of the President-elect.

Abujapress reports that Ganduje, a close ally of Tinubu, was one of the top government officials that received the President-elect at the airport on his return to the country on Saturday.
