Buhari Arrives Kano On Working Visit

Buhari Arrives Kano On Working Visit

Buhari said he would remain focused in order to restore the lost glory of the country. "The people of Kano are aware of the tremendous jobs we did on security and agriculture", Buhari said.

"When I was the military head of state, I have arrested many people and jailed them for alleged corruption and in the end, I also ended in a jail", he said.

President Buhari also praised Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for his efforts so far at implementing projects that have direct bearing on the standard of living of the people.

The 500 inmates granted pardon, including men and women, were drawn from various prisons in Kano state, including Kurmawa prison, which has 1,398 inmates as opposed to 750, the established capacity.

While Nigeria's next president is still expected to come from the north following an unwritten rule to have power rotated between the North and South regions of the country, for eight year stints, with the defection of former vice-president Atiku Abubakar to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other notable politicians from the North who may be vying for the presidency, the battle might not be an easy one.

In his response, Governor Ganduje expressed optimism that Buhari would still visit the state in the nearest future and commission several other developmental projects embarked upon by his administration.

"We are determined to better the life of our people", he stated, as he commended the Kano Emirate which he said consistently supported him in all the public offices he occupied.

Earlier, Ganduje said the contract for building of the hospital was awarded over 10 years ago by past administrations but that his administration felt obliged to complete it.

Ganduje explained that the Giginyu hospital cost his administration over N4 billion, while that of Zoo road gulped over N3 billion.

Among the prospective APC chieftains believed to be waiting in the wings on Buhari's intentions are Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Senator Rabiu Kwankwanso and Governor Aminu Tambuwal, all of who have denied any presidential aspiration in the meantime.

He said most Nigerians were hungry as a result of Buhari government's "non-performance".
