President Muhammadu Buhari who has not clearly stated plans to run for office again in 2019 has boasted that the people of Kano sare in his ‘pocket’ when it comes to free elections in Nigeria.
In his words: “I know the elections. If they are to be free and fair, if it is a question of numbers, if it is a question of allowing people to make their choice, then I think the people of Kano are in my pocket.”
Buhari who is on a 2-day official visit to Kano, stated this at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
From Sanusi’s palace, Buhari moved to the Kurmawa Prison, to inspect the state of Nigerian prisons himself.
