Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the media aide to Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has reacted to video showing Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje allegedly ‘trying to covert a Christian girl to Islam.’

DAILY POST had reported that the Governor who spoke in Hausa language was captured questioning a young girl who ‘reportedly had decided to change her faith.

The Governor in the two-minute clip told the young girl that a ‘Malami would put her through on what Islam is all about.’

But reacting, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, who did not deny the allegation maintained that the young girl is a pagan and not Christian.

On his Twitter page, @Dawisu, the aide wrote: “They are pagans not Christians. Kano has a good number of them and both Muslim and Christians go on a mission to try and convert as many as they can to their side.

“ECWA Church is doing well in this bcos they usually preach in Hausa.”
