As his two-term tenure in office comes to an end, Kano State Governor Dr Abdullahi Ganduje says he has forgiven those who have offended him and asks those who have wronged him to do the same.
Ganduje’s eight-year tenure will come to an end on May 29, when he will give over authority to the opposition New Nigeria People’s Party’s governor-elect, Abba Yusuf.
“I’ve forgiven anyone who at one time or another disparaged my person, and my character for whatever reasons,” the governor said on Saturday at a Ramadan lecture series at Al-Furqan Juma’at Mosque in Nasarawa GRA. “On my part, I equally beg or seek your forgiveness for all that I’ve done wrong to you.”
He added that he made the decision to forgive and seek forgiveness because “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 offence.”
Muazu Magaji, Ganduje’s former Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, responded quickly, saying, “Yes, I have forgiven you, but I will never forget how you plotted to eliminate me from the surface of the earth on a number of occasions.”
