“The people of Kano, I am aware that yours is business and farming; if you elect me come February 16, I will provide you with conducive atmosphere for farming and business.

“I will equally improve activities of hajj to make things easy for you to perform the annual hajj operation,” he said.

Speaking earlier, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, said going by the mammoth crowd that received Atiku in Kano, the youth have proven that PDP would win Kano.

He said, “Kano youth have proven to us that Kano is for the PDP. We are happy that youth have answered our call.”

He said, “People are suffering because there is hunger everywhere and it is only PDP can bail you out of this situation.”

In his remarks, the National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus noted that the crowd that converged on Sani Abacha Stadium was a sign of a gradual political revolution in Nigeria.
