Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has pleaded for forgiveness from those he might have offended in the course of governing the state.
Ganduje said at a Ramadan lecture series at Al Furqan Juma’at Mosque in Nasarawa GRA, Kano that he has forgiven those who wronged him and they should reciprocate by forgiving him.
“I’ve forgiven anyone who at one time disparaged my person and my character for whatever reasons, and on my part, I equally beg or seek for your forgiveness for all that I’ve done wrong to you,” he said.
Ganduje further said 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 offence,” he said.
Ganduje’s two-term tenure of eight years as the chief helmsman of Nigeria’s most populous state will come to an end on May 29, 2023. He is expected to hand over reign of power to the New Nigeria People’s Party’s Abba Kabiru
