As the exit of governance knocked on the door for the outgoing Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje begged for forgiveness from those he might have trampled in the course of his duty as the number one citizen of the state.
However, in a swift reaction to the purported plea of outgoing governor Ganduje, the former Commissioner for works and infrastructure, Muaz Magaji said ” Yes, I have forgiven you, but I will never forget how you plotted to eliminate me from the surface of the earth on several occasions”.
Governor Ganduje is expected to complete his second term of eight years in the next month and handover the mantle of leadership to governor-elect, Abba Kabir Yusuf
However, speaking at a Ramadan lecture series at Al Furqan Juma’at Mosque located at Nassarawa GRA Kano said “Forgive me for I’ve forgiven all”.
Quoting from his words Ganduje said, “I’ve forgiven anyone who at one time disparaged my person, and my character for whatever reasons, and on my part, I equally begged or seek for your forgiveness for all that I’ve done wrong to you.”
According to him, “the inspiration was drawn from the position of Islam, adding that “as espoused by the leader of this Mosque, forgiveness occupies a prime spot in our religion”.
“My tenure as governor of Kano state has come to an end, and this is a farewell greeting. I wish you all the best. For those who we have wronged, forgive us, on my part, I’ve forgiven those who wronged me no matter the weight of the offense. “
