Tinubu: ‘Leaked Audio’ Between Ganduje and Masari Reveals


Ibrahim Masari, a former All Progressives Congress (APC) placeholder vice presidential candidate, has criticized how President-elect Bola Tinubu handled his recent meeting with Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Masari questioned Tinubu’s failure to notify Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of his meeting in France with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

Buzzyvibes previously reported on Tinubu and Kwankwaso’s meeting in France on Monday.

Masari was heard on an allegedly leaked audio instructing Ganduje to meet with the president-elect one-on-one.

Ganduje continued to bemoan Tinubu’s abandonment following his meeting with Kwankwaso.

Tinubu, according to the former placeholder VP candidate, was giving the incorrect signal, causing people to lose trust in him.

“I spoke with Mr President earlier and I lamented to him about the issue. He (Tinubu) told me that it was SLS (Sanusi Lamido Sanusi) that arranged the meeting through one Chagoury. And I asked whether you were informed before the meeting, he (Tinubu) said no. I will adequately brief you when we meet, you know phone calls are not safe. Just keep exhibiting your maturity by keeping mum,” Masari said.

Ganduje however said he received a security report that the meeting was part of a plan to scuttle the Kano state APC governorship case at the election petition tribunal, which Masari concurred but quickly added that it was not within the powers of Tinubu to scuttle the election case.

“But your Excellency I’m pleading with you to be calm until you come around. Let’s not discuss this issue on the phone. You know how unsafe our conversation could be. Anytime you come around, we will have our usual meeting and present our resolutions to him, if need be,” Masari added.

Ganduje thereafter asked when Tinubu would return to the country to which Masari said he does not have clear details because when they earlier spoke, he expressed his anger and dissatisfaction to the president-elect.

The Kano-State Governor is expected to meet with Tinubu upon his return to the country.
