The Tijjaniyya Grassroots Mobilisation and Empowerment Initiative of Nigeria (TIGMEIN), an initiative of the Tijjaniyya sect, has endorsed Uba Sani, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna.

Muhammad Sanusi II, former emir of Kano, was named leader of the Tijjaniyya sect in March 2021.

The origin of the Tijjaniyya sect is said to date back to the 1830s, and was reportedly introduced to Nigeria by the Sokoto caliphate.

In a statement issued after the endorsement over the weekend, Sani expressed appreciation to the group, adding that he would ensure an all-inclusive government if elected.

“I am deeply humbled by the endorsement I received from an important faith-based organisation, the Tijjaniyya Grassroots Mobilisation and Empowerment Initiative of Nigeria (TIGMEIN),” he said.

“At a meeting I held with the group, I assured them of my determination to run an inclusive and people-oriented administration when elected as the Governor of Kaduna State come 2023.

As a long standing civic rights myself, I fully understand and appreciate the enormous contributions and sacrifices of the group towards the empowerment of the people and ensuring a morally upright society. I commend them for their invaluable services to the underprivileged, the underserved and the voiceless.

“In order to encourage them and further make their work more efficient, I donated an official bus to the group and assured them of my utmost support whenever the need arises.

“In conclusion, I appreciated them for their unflinching support and urged them to vote for our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as well as other APC candidates at all levels in the forthcoming elections.”
