Drama As Man Absolves Ganduje, Reveals Who Really Bought The Campaign Buses For Buhari

A man has come up to absolve the Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, of a social media allegation that the governor donated a fleet of buses allegedly for the Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 presidential campaign.

A Twitter user, SophyBest @SophyBest2 had alleged in a tweet that Ganduje had “just donated N5bn and 200 buses for President Muhammadu Buhari 2019 reelection campaign.
She asserted that it wasn’t a wonder that “the EFCC and other security agencies are still waiting for Mr. President’s assent to investigate Ganduje.”
SophyBest had tweeted:


Ganduje is currently embroiled in an allegation that he received $5m in cash from a contractor handling public projects in his state.

In response to SophyBest, the Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad @BashirAhmaad, quickly took up the narrative, describing her tweet as “fake news.”
Ahmad tweeted:

However, another Twitter user, one Yakubu Gobir with Twitter handle @YakubuGobir, came up in Ganduje’s defence, saying that he, and not Governor Ganduje, donated the alleged 200 buses for the Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 presidential campaigns.
He was silent on the N5bn cash as alleged by SophyBest, however.

Yakubu Gobir’s Twitter handle explains his identity thus: “I am a Kwaran, a Technocrat, Pharmacist by profession, a businessman, a family man, a good husband & a politician.”

But beyond his Twitter handle, Yakubu Gobir also redirected interested Twitterati to his Facebook page, where he gave a detailed explanation about himself.

In the Facebook post dated September 26, 2018 and posted at about 8.18PM, Gobir submitted a curriculum vitae of sorts:

Yakubu Gobir is with Abdullahi Idayat and 48 others.

For many asking who is Yakubu Gobir…

Yakubu Gobir is a pharmacist, and a graduate of INSEAD and Harvard Business School. After spending a number of years working for Pfizer and Hoechst in Nigeria.

Yakubu started his own marketing and distribution company – Smart Mark Limited in June 1998.
Smart Mark has opened up the Nigerian market for a number of multinationals including Swatch, Sara Lee, Wella, L’Oreal, Nike, Levi’s, Converse, United Colors of Benetton, T.M Lewin, Unilever and now Tommy Hilfiger. The company employs over 500 people.

Yakubu Gobir is a social entrepreneur and a pioneer in fashion retail in Nigeria and Ghana. In 2003 he started a fashion retail chain – Fast Forward Stores, which now has over 65 stores in Nigeria and Ghana. A very successful online shopping platform has just been added to the brick and mortar stores.

In 2014, Yakubu returned to his roots in pharmacy practice and started the roll out of large format (750-1,200 sqm) Health & Beauty stores under the brand name INVIVO.

These are the first of their kind in Nigeria – and include a Pharmacy, Clinic and Salon in a beautiful world class setting. Stores are already operational in Lagos, Ibadan & Abuja.

Social entrepreneurship is the use of business techniques to find solutions to social problems. This concept may be applied to a variety of organizations with different sizes, aims, and beliefs.

With INVIVO the social problems being addressed are a lack of easy access to primary healthcare; the menace of counterfeit and fake drugs; self medication; and lack of early diagnosis of potentially fatal disease conditions in Nigeria. Four locations have been opened in Surulere and Lekki in Lagos, Abuja and Ibadan. 10,454 patients were treated for free in 2015. 25,991 free treatments have been delivered in 2016.
