The Kano State Government House Media and Communications’ Director General, Salihu Tanko Yakasi, has come out to react to the recent viral photo of Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, appearing to wear his seat belt the wrong way while seated in a private jet.
Some Nigerians ridiculed Gov. Gandujue on social media after the photo surfaced online, saying he was wearing the seat belt as if he was in a car.
However, Tanko, in a statement released today and written in Hausa, pointed out that the Governor actually wore his seat belt the right way as the seat belts of some private jets are similar to that of cars.
The statement, written in Hausa reads;
“Ga wadanda ba su taba hawa Private Jet ba, bari na dan wayar muku da kai. Shi seatbelt din mafi yawancin sa ba irin na sauran jiragen passenger bane irin su Azman da Arik, shi seatbelt din sa irin na mota ne kamar yadda kuke gani a hotonun nan. Muna fatan Allah Ya bawa kowa ikon hawa private jet ko sau daya ne ko Allah zai sa kan wasu ya waye. Amin!”.
