Party supporters had earlier defied the morning rain as convoy of cars and motor-cyclists bearing Buhari’s posters with sundry aspirants drove round town in convoys of cars and motor cycles, chanting “Najeriya sai Buhari,” “Canji dole,” “Najeriya sai mai gaskiya” and other pro Buhari slogans.

As early as 9am, other supporters had besieged the state secretariat waiting for Buhari to arrive for the commissioning. Posters of various aspirants and their supporters competed for space at the party office. Supporters wore T-shirts with pictures of their preferred candidates as well as Buhari’s conspicuously displayed. Supporters from Gobirawa ward in Dala Local Government of Kano State also graced the occasion, as were party members from the state chapter.

Alhaji Zakari Ahmed Na’ibawa told Sunday Trust that he came from Kano in order to witness the “very important event because Buhari has been my mentor.”  Naibawa, who is a retired customs officer, also said that he joined CPC because he believes in the integrity and leadership qualities of the General, adding that he would run for the House of Representatives for Kumbotso federal constituency.

Around 12 noon, Rabah Road was completely overwhelmed by CPC supporters from the Arewa House end of the road up to the Wurno Road junction where the party office is located. At 12.45pm when the Federal Road Safety Corps outriders heralded the coming of Buhari, the crowd spontaneously started chanting “Baba oyoyo“ and it became uncontrollable.
