Kano Guber Poll: Dantata Denies Endorsing APC

Business tycoon and elder statesman, Alhaji Aminu Dantata, has denied reports saying he has endorsed Nasiru Gawuna, gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Kano state.

Several reports (not by Daily Trust) and talks within Kano political space have been making the rounds earlier in the week that the nonagenarian had thrown his weight behind Gawuna.

The claimed support was based in part on the perception of hostility between the elder statesman and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the head of the New Nigeria People's Party (NNPP), the state's main opposition party.

Yet Dantata said he is not partisan in a Facebook post by his principal private secretary, Mustapha Junaid.

Dantata has never endorsed a political party or candidate, according to Junaid, who also emphasized that he is committed to remaining politically impartial because he has always taken a non-partisan stance on elections. According to Daily trust.

"I am informing everyone that Aminu Dantata is a father to everybody and has not advised anyone to vote for Gawuna or endorsed anyone else. The post in Hausa language translates, "Therefore, those disseminating this bogus news should desist immediately and as a matter of immediacy, take down all the posts published in reference to this.
